When using a dual monitor setup every time I want to connect or disconnect the monitor I have to go into the display settings; is there a way that this can be bypassed with a AHK script? All the script needs to do is activate the monitor so it displays to the left hand side, it is the same monitor every time just I like to move my laptop around a lot and obviously cant move the second monitor.

When you ever move to Windows 7, you can use WIN+P to do this. ;-) – Tom Wijsman Aug 15 '10 at 17:52
Windows 7 usually tries to put a monitor it recognizes back where it was before as soon as you plug it in - I'm surprised Vista doesn't. (Or is this maybe a VGA connection?) – Shinrai Apr 4 '12 at 14:07

This AutoHotkey forum thread contains such a script.
