@johnspack, try running this one with dual monitors.

You can choose which monitor by running it from a command prompt and adding a "/<monitor#>" switch after it.
So something like ... MonitorUnburn_WF.exe /1
The monitors are zero-based, so if you have two of them they will be 0 and 1.
It only reads the first character after the "/", so if you type in /15 it will see it as /1, thus it will only work with up to 10 monitors (0-9). I don't see this as a big problem at this point. :D

It should throw an error and quit if you choose an invalid monitor number or if you give it a non-numeric switch like "/tpu". It is only looking for the last occurrence of the "/" in the command string args, so if you type "MonitorUnburn.exe /0 /1", it should use the /1.

Try starting it from both monitors to make sure it works either way.
See if you can break it. :)

If anyone else with dual (or more) monitors would like to test it I would appreciate it.
Nice! I just tested it and it works great on my dual monitor setup. :toast:

Yep, it works on both monitors now. My main monitor is getting better, but I guess I got some pretty bad burn in on it. Still haven't really run it that much on it yet, so I'll keep at it.

You saved my bacon! I've been trying out a 40" tv to see if I wanted to buy it from a friend and I lightly burned in the desktop image! But this is working even an hour in, thank you so much!

This program is definitely going into my essential programs folder haha.
