The Stratodesk Monitor Control tool has been developed to help control position and rotation of monitors, without the need to access the configuration of the end point, or the need to reboot the device for the changes to take effect and was introduced in firmware version 3.2.760 & NoTouch Center 4.4.254.

You can enable the tool via NoTouch Center in the Group settings under the display settings as shown below, and then announce the changes and reboot the endpoint.

Once the device has rebooted, the user will be able to select the configuration utility from the Taskbar, which appears as a small monitor icon, or by using the hotkey ctrl+alt+d.
