Windows 7: need help to get windows 7 button to swap between screens

need help to get windows 7 button to swap between screens

I have Windows 7 ultimate N (OS) with a dual screen set up, and I was messing around with setting the other day when I got a button to appear on the title bar right next to the close, minimize ect buttons. Upon restarting my PC the button disappeared and I'm not sure how to get it back.

FYI: the button moves the open program to the identical spot on the other screen.

I have a screen shot that shows the Button but am unsure how to put on the post.

I have tried to find it again but can't. If anyone knows how to find the button that would be awesome!

Hello Remus, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The tutorial below can help show you how to upload and attach your screenshot to a post here. In addition, please fill out all of your system specs to be able to get more specific help for it. In this case what brand and model of computer you have, if OEM, in case this button may be a program that came preinstalled on the computer.

Hey Brink thanks for the help, i used the tutorial and added a photo to help and added as many specs as I know, the computer was built by my brother so no OEM and yes i have asked him this question but he did not know! Sorry about the late reply as i have been away on holidays.

Hope somebody can solve this now with any luck!

Have a look in your graphics adapter preferences (like Catalyst Control Center if you had an AMD/ATI card), and in Hotkeys, as the button you want may be toggled by a keyboard shortcut.

Thanks for the advice, I do have an ATI card with a Catalyst center which has a hot keys area, however I could not get any hotkeys to come up!

Also as the picture above shows it was a button that appeared title bar and was clicked by the mouse while the keyboard was not necessary.

although I think windows might have a combination shortcut keys?

It is a third-party application that adds that button to the title bar.
Nothing Windows itself has.

Just search through all the preferences in there. I don't have dual monitor setup so I was just guessing there might be something in there.

Win+P gives some display options. Win+Shift+Left arrow (or Right) is supposed to jump you to left or right monitor.

edit: I just saw your icon at DisplayFusion - maybe that or similar software was installed on your computer - look in Program Files or Programs and Features.
