These days many bloggers, web designers and writers prefer to use a dual monitor setup for their PC so that can comfortably research about a topic on one monitor while writing about it on the second. This is rapidly becoming very popular among the people who have to spend a long time in front of their computers. One reason for this could be that the computer monitors are now larger and cheaper than even before. No matter what the reason is if you are also having a dual monitor setup for your Windows PC, then perhaps you would want to manage it using a free software suite called Dual Monitor Tools.

You can create hotkeys for moving windows around, restrict mouse or cursor movement between screens, launch application on specific screens, choose wallpapers for the different screens, temporarily disable secondary screens and also take the screenshots on all the connected monitors.
