I have many monitors connected to my laptop and I sometimes want to focus on just one or two monitor without being disturbed by the other monitors. I am looking for a program that can temporary disable a few selected monitors, e.g. it would blacken those monitors but it wouldn't reorganize the windows around as it would if I was disabling monitors using Windows settings:

I would prefer if the program supports Windows and is free.

You can use UltraMon's mirror feature (Windows, non-free): it does not shuffle the window organization (i.e. after using it the same windows will be on the same monitors) but take 10-15 seconds to turn on/off so it's a pis-aller:

You can use Multiscreen Blank:

  • can be used for both private and commercial settings free of charge.
  • work with Microsoft Windows 7 (I tried it), and perhaps other Microsoft Windows versions.
  • GUI and CLI
  • I find Multiscreen Blank 1.1.0 to be less buggy than Multiscreen Blank 2.0.6, and prefer its GUI.

Multiscreen Blank 2.0.6:
