I want to use this approach to run applications on each of multiple screens, and perform real-time image recognition on each of those applications. What I'm worried about is how Windows treats these additional displays if they arent currently being viewed - will they essentially be "frozen", and stop rendering? Or will they continue to be treated normally as visible applications?

I realize different applications can behave in different ways internally, but Im asking specifically about the behavior Windows will exhibit by default, regardless of application internal behavior.

  • @Ramhound Could you clarify? Im not trying to display different workspaces on different monitors. Im trying to use different workspaces to have additional "virtual screens" Lets say I want to run 24 copies of an application and perform image recognition on each of those applications as they render - I dont need to buy 24 monitors, that would be silly. I need virtual displays, and this seems like it might be a solution.

  • Well you can't have 24 virtual desktops....virtual desktop isn't a display and you can only have one activeat a time
