toggle between a monitor and a projector

I have one projector connected to the dvi port and monitor connected to the hdmi port. It is a geforce 6800 video card on a xp machine. I want to be able to toggle between monitor and project like how you would do it with a laptop when you hit Fn+F4. Is there a hotkey or an app for it? thx

The software that came with the video card (which also can be downloaded from the nVidia site) should allow you to select which output goes to which video port.  If you see the nVidia icon on the right side of the taskbar, use that to open the properties dialog for your video card.

i dont find it anywhere in the software where it allows me to toggle between different output. the only thing that's somewhat related is to choose which is primary or secondary display. Is there a free software that will do the job?

If my memory serves me correct, the nVidia nView software allows you to specify whether the video  sent to the video outputs is the same (cloned) or different in a selectable manner (such as by application).  By establishing hot keys in the nView software, you can switch video output functions (e.g. toggle displays) without having to open the nView Control Panel.

wow i installed the latest driver and it doesn't have the hotkey option. I had to download the driver dated back to 2006 which includes the hotkey option. But it's an old card so i guess it wont make too much  difference i guess? Thanks for your help.
