I remember using a computer with Windows installed, and it had not one, but two resolution settings in Display Properties - one for the screen, the other for the desktop itself, and if the desktop resolution was larger than screen's, you could use the mouse to move the display.

Was it a standard feature on some build of Windows 95, or was it just some external addon?

If I recall correctly, this happens when you set the resolution to bigger than the screens resolution. Most likely an ATI or nVidia driver feature? – dbr Jul 30 '09 at 9:39

I think, this depends on graphic card drivers. ATI had this, if I remember.

I can't recall any version of Windows offering this option. However this question covers the topic with links to Virtual Desktop software that will provide this ability.
