SwitchResX 4.10.1 macOS | 7.6 MB
SwitchResX gives you unparalleled control over your monitor’s resolution.
Whether you prefer to use the menu bar or nested contextual menus, SwitchResX gives you constant, simplified access to the resolution management options you need.
- Monitor Resolution
- Color Depth
- Video Mirroring
- Display Rotation
- Display Overscan
Save your desktop layout, locking and maintaining icon and window positions for all of your open applications every time you start up your Mac. SwitchResX lets you instantly restore your desktop even after resolution-altering events like connecting or disconnecting your external monitor.
Disable or deactivate a monitor without physically unplugging it, allowing you to use your MacBook in clamshell mode with an external monitor, keyboard and mouse.
Link your monitor settings with system events: Key shortcuts, Apple Scripts, Application launches and more.
Take complete control over your display resolution: Advanced features let you create and enable new resolutions for your monitor, HDTV, Plasma or LCD screen or Video Projector.
- Can now create custom resolutions without needing to disable SIP (on macOS 10.15.2 and above).
If you are on macOS 10.15.2 and above, created custom resolutions, and enabled SIP again after creating the custom resolution, I advise you to disable SIP a last time so that SwitchResX resets your settings to its new format.
Disabling SIP is still required to get the Contextual Menu running in the Finder (which is an optional feature).
- Correctly reports the monitor name identically to macOS
- Corrects a lot of graphical issues when showing the resolutions menus
- Corrects the way rotated monitors are showing a native resolution
- Corrects an issue when showing currently active Display Sets
- Correctly rescans the monitors after the Mac wakes from sleep
- Corrected a graphical issue when showing monitors in Display Sets configuration panel, when the monitor was from an “unknown” vendor
- Corrected recording of any brightness change if AppleScript recording is used (if you ever used AppleScript recording in SwitchResX, I’d be glad to hear from you! )
- Correctly calculate & display the refresh rates even if macOS doesn’t report them
- The option to show refresh rates separated in the menus is now a monitor specific setting, not a global setting for all monitors. You can now also sort the “current resolutions” by refresh rates in the SwitchResX Preferences
- Added information if a resolution is interlaced in the resolution name
- Added a new experimental “Events” features: a Display Set can be activated when specific System Events occur. Check the “Read Me” file for more information
Compatibility: OS X 10.6 or later, 64-bit processor
