Thanks for the list of the tools. I was surpsised that some of the named tools are free of charge as I have always thought that I have to pay when I get them. Are they really free or are they free only for trial versions?

I think sometimes it is better to pay and get a reliable and stable tool for th whole time. For example, I use the software Anturis, which is completely free up to 5 monitors. If you want more, then you will have to pay, but the price is about 25 dollars per year. I think with such tools guarantee constant support.
