Software update: DisplayFusion 3.4.0

Spread the love

Binary Fortress Software has released a new version of DisplayFusion. With the help of this program it is possible to manage a multimonitor setup. For example, a separate background or screensaver can be set for each screen and programs can be opened on a screen determined by the user. A license costs 13.50 euros, or 19 euros for all computers in a household. There is also a free version, but of course it has less opportunities† More information about DisplayFusion can be found at this page are being found.
