Using Windows 10 / 64 Pro version 1809. I recently purchased a WQHD monitor and have a need for the following use case:
- I teach online courses for which I need to be able to present and switch between PowerPoint, Web browser, and an IDE.
- The presentation resolution is 1280x720, which I would like to fit in a window on my desktop and use the rest for my notes and scripts.
- My screen sharing utility allows for 'lock on application' instead of full screen or pre-configured area, and I would like to lock it on this 'virtual monitor' window so I don't have to switch sharing between the apps as it takes too long and is error prone.
I checked this forum and others and all I could find are solutions that enable either:
Multiple desktops, but each covers the entire screen. The built-in windows multiple desktops feature does it nicely.
Allow for spitting the main monitor screen to multiple smaller virtual monitors, but each has to be a rectangle which wasted a huge amount of my screen's area, and it is not movable.
- Allow for 'fake' virtual monitors that can only be seen with an RDP, but that sounds way too convoluted for what I need.
What I really need is a utility that will emulate a second monitor, and show it in a movable, re-sizable application window that I can run all the presented utilities, and allow locking to my screen sharing utility.
Any idea if such a thing exists?
Thanks in advance for your help!
