Right click on desktop, screen resolution, make primary. Not a big deal, but I don't know of a way to shorten it.
You might be able to write a batch file that can change it with a click, but I don't know.

Oh I see. That is why I recommended the batch file. As I said, I am not sure that is possible to do. Best option would be to have the 2 in the same room
