Mirror Display Control


Are you annoyed by the fact that every new display is automatically mirrored by macOS? It exposes your precious screen which may show, at the time, information you do not want to share with the audience. Would you rather like to disable mirroring by default, then Mirror Display Control is what you are looking for. It is a comprehensive menu bar application for macOS. It lets you control how second displays should behave. Meaning you can configure that second displays are automatically not mirrored. Additionally, you can enforce mirroring also for displays which the last time had mirroring disabled. And of course, you can toggle the current mirror state directly in the menu bar.

In addition, Mirror Display Control can be configured to launch at login. You do not have to worry about newly attached displays. They are always behaving like you have configured it.


  • Toggle mirror display configuration via the menu bar
  • Automatically turn off mirroring, if new displays are attached
  • Automatically turn on mirroring, if new displays are attached
  • Launch at login automatically for your convenience
