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.

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

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

Great for playing old games! I'm a huge legacy gamer so this app is perfect. There's nothing worse than trying to play an old game in the wrong resolution. It feels like a default Mac function too, the way it just sits up there in the top bar. Love it.

Kaylee Harrington

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

Nikki Staley

GREAT app, and wonderful developer to boot. Answered all my questions thoroughly, quickly and kindly. I have a feeling I'll be owning several more Koingo apps here within the next few months. It's just a matter of time now.

Devon Johnson

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

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

Mike Matyas

Retro Mac gaming for the win! I love this app. It makes my life so much easier. I was pretty bummed when I noticed that Apple had removed the 256-color display option. This app fixes that problem right away. Thanks for being awesome, Koingo. As always.

Sean Bigsby

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

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