Dual Monitor Management Software

I'm looking for some dual monitor management software similar to that of DisplayFusion, but without a price tag. Anyone have any suggestions? Spanks.

There's only integrated Intel HD graphics on the CPU, so I'm using a USB-to-VGA display adapter to get dual screens. There's no software currently on the desktop.

I have been using a program called UltraMon for a few years that I'm happy with. It is not free, but pretty reasonably priced. If you have the right connections I'm sure you can find it for free or as share-ware.

This is a test box for work. I have full admin rights.

Dell Optiplex 790
Intel i5 - 2400 @ 3.1 GHz
Windows 7 64-bit Enterprise SP1
4 GB RAM

Using a Lenovo USB-to-VGA display port adapter for the second monitor.



I just wanted to see if anyone had any opinions on any free monitor management software, if it exists, before I go about researching licensed software.

I've always used whatever came with the graphics card but have you looked at Ultramon? http://www.realtimesoft.com/ultramon/

Never used it but it looks ok...

I use DisplayFusion myself...and if you're looking for features close to what DF offers (taskbars spread across monitors, etc), there are no "free" alternatives that I'm aware of. As mentioned above, ATI and nVidia drivers do a good job, but as you're using integrated gfx, that won't help you.
