Displays Unlocked

Display Maestro gives you full control over attached displays, allowing the use of all available resolutions and bit depths. Latest versions of macOS strip out the useful ability to set specific resolutions and presents a more user-friendly approach.

Experienced users, especially graphic designers and presenters, demand more precise control of their devices. Access exactly the resolution you need with Display Maestro's traditional Mac-like menu.


Access the full list of resolutions and bit-depths supported by the graphics card and attached display. Note that some graphics cards may limit the display's options.
Older games and apps sometimes require the use of precise resolutions, and can no longer set these automatically due to changes in macOS. Display Maestro lets you pick exactly the configuration you need.
Display Maestro implements functionality that will detect if an unsafe resolution was chosen and will automatically revert to the last known safe resolution if confirmation is not given.

This app does what it says. It allows me to configure my retina display 15 inch Macbook Pro to the same rez as the 30 Inch Cinema Display. That way I can use them as the same area in size. But what I really like is. When I mirror the displays, while I am on the go with just the rMBP, the items and apps that place items on the desktop all stay in place. Such a time saver and hassle reducer! Thank you for making Display Maestro!

needed a way to control the display size on a headless Minimac and this solved the problem completely.

Mike Matyas

Got totally boned by Mac regarding displays. Display maestro to the rescue!

Nikki Staley

Does exactly what it's advertised to do. Very responsive developer, too. In my opinion this is an essential Mac app as it brings back features that Apple has taken away over the years and puts them back to use. Can't argue there. Absolutely recommended.

Kyle Fox

Saved my (production) life, when Apple took away resolution options!

Nikki Staley

Solved the problem we had with Apple OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) Control Panel not recognizing our Matrox 3 monitor external display array. Display Maestro allows us to set the resolution to the full values allowed for the external display array.

Equity Management Services

It is a very useful item , It adjust to the available proyector easy

Jorge A Diaz

Perfect utility to use when you want to play old games in 256-color mode! Couldn't be easier to use, either. It runs in the background, barely noticeable unless you're looking for it. 10/10 and two thumbs up.

Geoff Christofferson

This is perfect! I have multiple monitors set up and this is just what I needed. So simple and useful. Worth every penny I paid for it. I probably would have paid thrice that if you'd asked me to.

Colton Rau

great little app should have been available in mac Os
