Overview
Dell Display Manager is a Windows application used to manage a monitor
or a group of monitors. It allows manual adjustment of the displayed image,
assignment of automatic settings, energy management, window organization,
image rotation, and other features on select Dell monitors. Once installed, Dell
display manager runs each time the computer starts and its icon is placed in
the notification tray. Information about monitors connected to the computer is
displayed when you hover the mouse pointer over the notification tray icon.

Overview
Using the Quick Settings Dialog
Clicking Dell Display Manager’s notification tray icon opens the Quick Settings
dialog box. When more than one supported Dell model is connected to the
system, a specific target monitor can be selected using the menu provided.
The Quick Settings dialog box allows convenient adjustment of the monitor’s
brightness and contrast levels. You can manually select a preset mode or enable
automatic selection of a preset mode depending on the active application.
The Quick Settings dialog box also provides access to Dell display manager’s
advanced user interface, which is used to adjust basic functions, configure Auto
Mode, and access other features.

Setting Basic Display Functions
A preset mode for the selected monitor can be manually applied using the
menu on the Basic tab. Alternatively, Auto Mode can be enabled. Auto Mode
causes your preferred preset mode to be applied automatically when specific
applications are active. A message momentarily appears on the screen showing
the selected preset mode.
The selected monitor’s brightness and contrast can also be directly adjusted
from the Basic tab.

Assigning Preset Modes to Applications
The Auto Mode tab allows you to associate a specific preset mode with a
specific application, and apply it automatically. When Auto Mode is enabled,
Dell Display Manager automatically switches to the corresponding preset mode
whenever the associated application is activated. The preset mode assigned to
a particular application may be the same on each connected monitor, or it can
vary from one monitor to the next.
Dell Display Manager is pre-configured for many popular applications. To add
a new application to the assignment list, simply drag the application from the
desktop, Windows Start Menu, or elsewhere, and drop it onto the current list.
NOTE: Preset mode assignments targeting batch files, scripts, and
loaders, as well as non-executable files such as zip archives or packed
files, are not supported and will be ineffective.
In addition an option can be enabled that activates the Game preset mode when
a Direct3D application is run in full-screen mode. To override this behavior for
individual game titles, add them to the assignment list with a different Preset
Mode. Applications present in the assignment list take priority over the general
Direct3D setting.

Applying Energy Conservation Features
On supported Dell models, an Options tab is available to provide PowerNap
energy conservation options. When the screensaver activates, the monitor’s
Brightness can automatically be set to minimum level or the monitor can be put
to sleep in order to save additional power.

Organizing Windows with Easy Arrange
Some Dell models feature Easy Arrange, which allows the selected monitor’s
desktop to be organized into various predefined or custom window layouts.
When Easy Arrange is enabled, windows can easily be repositioned and resized
automatically to fill specific regions within a window layout.
To get started with Easy Arrange, choose a target monitor and select one of the
predefined layouts. The regions for that layout are displayed momentarily on the
monitor. Next, drag an open window across the monitor. While the window is
being dragged, the current window layout is displayed and an active region gets
highlighted as the window passes over it. At any time, drop the window into the
active region to place the window in that region.

To create a custom window layout, size and position the windows
(maximum 10) on the desktop and then click the Save link in Easy Arrange. The
size and position of the windows is saved as a custom layout and the custom
layout icon is created. NOTE: This option does not save or remember the applications that are
open. Only the size and position of the windows is saved..

Rotation option under Other Settings in the OSD menu, changing the menu
orientation will automatically trigger a corresponding change in Windows screen
orientation. On monitors with an Auto Rotate option under Other Settings in
the OSD menu, enabling this option will automatically trigger a corresponding
change in Windows screen orientation when the physical orientation of the
