AppleScript command to turn on display mirroring when plugged into an external monitor

Recommended Posts

Anyone know if its possible using appleScript to switch between mirroring and split screen when using an external monitor.


I often switch when sitting at my desktop station between mirroring and split screen. Would love to make an Alfred workflow to automate this swap to a single command.

Because the problem isn’t Alfred-related, you should ask somewhere else more general, like Ask Different. After you get the code, we can help you make the Workflow if you need it.


I’ve done a quick search for “applescript display mirroring” and found results. I haven’t tried any of them, which is why I’m not linking to anything specific.
