Fetch location and size of physical screens.

Project description


Fetch location and size of physical screens.

Supported environments

  • MS Windows
  • MS Windows: Cygwin
  • GNU/Linux: X11 (through Xinerama)
  • GNU/Linux: DRM (experimental)
  • OSX: (through PyOBJus)

I don't plan on testing OSX or other environments myself. For this reason, I strongly encourage pull requests.


pip install screeninfo

If you install it from sources:

python3 install


from screeninfo import get_monitors
for m in get_monitors():


Monitor(x=1920, y=0, width=1920, height=1080, name=None)
Monitor(x=0, y=0, width=1920, height=1080, name=None)

Forcing environment

In some cases (emulating X server on Cygwin etc.) you might want to specify the driver directly. You can do so by passing extra parameter to get_monitors() like this:

from screeninfo import get_monitors, Enumerator
for m in get_monitors(Enumerator.OSX):

Available drivers: windows, cygwin, x11, osx.
