Greetings,

Is there a quick key built into XP that allows you to switch between monitors? If so what is it? If not is there a way of creating one?

The reason i am asking is because i can plug my TV into the back of my video card, but it is [bleep] well hard switching between the monitor and my TV, having to go into the options and then not being able to find them on the poorer quality picture of the tv.

Please help.

Built into XP no not as far as i know, the might be a key built into your driver package. What card do you have? Nvidia? as i know their setting you can change as i have one myself and have done what you have done and i can change between them with the keyboard shortcut. But iv its not Nvidia then what type because the chances are that you will be able to do the same with them.
