    Hey all, does anyone know of a hotkey to detect new displays? I plug my Powerbook into my TV often and don't want the little Detect Display icon in my menu bar. It would be much easier just to use a hotkey, or even if I could set up a shortcut to do it. Thanks

    I'm not sure if you can create a hotkey for that in OSX, but I can bring up Displays using Butler.

    Hot key for Detecting

    If you hit (Command + F2) it will detect displays.

    I use it for when my macbook is running on external display with the lid closed and I open it I want the screen to reactivate. It works.
