    Quickly switch between desktop modes?


    Hello guys I am having some first world problems,
    Well I have a weird setup between my monitors and I would like to easily switch between them all.
    I have 3 configurations I want to have,
    1 : Eyefinity: Which basically makes my 3 monitors behave like a Single Large Surface(SLS). Resolution 46XX by 900
    2 : Center : Turn off my monitor on the left and right and keep center only. Sometimes I want to run games at max high settings. Resolution 1440 X 900
    3 : Panasonic : I want my Panasonic to be the main display. Resolution 1280 by 720

    What software will help me with this I been trying to use AMD Vision software but it doesn't seem to work. I would assume that the presets would do such job.

    So I think AMD software has presets but they are a pain to setup!
    So far I am able to switch between center and eyefinity but I need to do more testing to make sure it all works fine and that I can quickly change between any mode including Panasonic mode
