WS Display Settings is a utility to save and apply Windows display settings (monitor positioning, resolution, refresh rate, display extension mode) to and from file as well as adjust the monitor brightness/contrast/colour settings itself. It can also save and restore the window arrangement across displays (position, size and state) and has handy window management features. Finally it can save and load common desktop icon file types and its desktop layout so you can arrange and restore your desktop icons with the click of a button.
The menu of WS Display Settings is accessible through the Windows System Tray (the area left to the clock) and gives quick access to display and window management. The shortcut for it is `ALT` + `SPACE`. If the icon is hidden behind the 'Show hidden icons'-arrow, you can simply drag it to a visible part of the systray.
By default, newly opened windows will be moved to the monitor that contains the mouse pointer for convenience (unlike default Windows behaviour, which can still be used by holding `ALT` while opening a window).
Be sure to check out the Preferences file (menu/Quick Access/Preferences...) to enable/disable certain program features to your liking. To apply changed settings, simply save the preferences file (CTRL+S).
