Hassle-free on-screen settings adjustment

SmartControl features a simple on-screen graphic interface. From adjusting monitor display settings and color tuning to screen splitting and rotation, monitor parameters and more can be adjusted via this intuitive and user-friendly utility software for Windows operating system.

Since it's supported by Window, once installed, SmartControl can be accessed from the Start Menu or the system tray to pull up the main menu, much like using a regular PC.

The main menu contains four items: Picture, Color, Language, and Setup. Selecting Color, for example, will open to sub-levels brightness, contrast, picture format, and Smart Image.
