    Hi fellow Apple users :)
    I'm trying to solve this problem for almost a year now.

    The thing is pretty straight-forward. I would like an "one-click" solution for switching a primary display. (from my iMac to my TV)
    Only way I know is to go to the settings and drag the status bar to a secondary display to make it primary. I thought I could record that action via Automator, but there are many windows and stuff, so it depends on momentary state of iMac (RAM, processor, etc..) way too much. For ex. it takes different amount of time to open the settings window, so the probability of Automator clicking into blank is pretty high at times.
    I think this could be somehow solved with a script, but because I'm not really good with Terminal and similar stuff (besides basic commands) and I don't know for which file I should look, so I can't do it on my own.
    I would appreciate any kind of help.
