  • Using 2 Monitors 1 Computer 2 Programs

    i would like to be able to see 1 program on 1 screen, and another program, on the other screen. But be able to work on both screens using 1 keyboard and 1 mouse.


    Is this possible? If so, how would you choose which monitor you want to type on.


    Thanks

    Surely this is a very common practice using a video card with dual ports (or a laptop + an external monitor)
    Just click on the program you want to use and all input will go into it

    (or am I missing something?)

      hesitant about asking a simple question, but had never done before, didn't want to purchase something if all it did was to show seperate screens.

      Do they all work the same way, as in, move the curser over to the other screen, and you can type on that screen without having to manually swith to the other screen to type?

            Yup, I use 2 graphics cards & 3 screens, you just wander off one screen and onto the next one. Outlook full screen on 1st, Word full screen on 2nd & firefox full screen on 3rd... Please see the attached photo....

            You'll need to use the setting 'Extend my desktop to this monitor'
