for a presentation I have to use two different display settings. For Keynote I want to see the presenters view on my laptop and the beamer should just show the slides. In between there are livedemos which require a resolution of 1024x768 and the screen to be mirrored.

So, I once discovered a hotkey to swap the current display settings with the ones I had before, but I cannot remember it and do not find it with google.

Does anybody know this hotkey or another easy way to archieve this?

Kind regards,



If you mean the keyboard shortcut that toggles mirroring displays, it's command-F1 (or fn-command-F1).
