I do not think that it would be possible, since your laptop has only 1xVGA and 1xHDMI ports. You should have additional output. HDMI could not show different output on different laptops only show the same output, as far as I know.

Also go Windows Settings and search for Adjust ClearType text. Run this and set each Clear Type setting for best type. Then search for Calibrate display and go through all the settings. Things like Gamma affect your display. So do All suggested by both posts here.

Right click your desktop > Display Settings or type Display Settings in the start menu. This should open the Display Settings applet, showing all monitors present in the system. Scroll down until you see Scale and layout. If it's 125% or greater, old apps will show blurred content. Change it to 100%.

In short, no. The computer has no idea what the physical size of each monitor is, it can only see its resolution. You can only traverse between screens inside the pixel count that you have lined up in your display preferences, the rest has no corresponding partner screen to move to… it's a brick wall, in effect.

You can do this on Windows 10 within Display Settings. Step 1 Right-click on desktop --> Display settings. Step 2 Select i.e. Left-click on the monitor you want to rotate. Step 3 From the Orientation drop-down box, select portrait.

Try formatting your BusID lines like this: BusID "PCI:0:2:0" BusID "PCI:1:0:0" I've been searching similar setups recently. I cannot remember where I saw it, but there was an explanation that these numbers are decimal, not hex as printed by lspci. And, all should be separated by colons with no extra (i.e. leading) zeros. I cannot authoritatively comment ...

The answer from Señor CMasMas is on all accounts correct. But if you are on WSL 2 localhost will not work. At least, it does not work at the time of writing this. (There are rumours that the WSL team is working on something to address this.) The reason is that WSL 2 puts your Ubuntu (or whatever) in a separate (virtual) machine instead as a part of the ...

New tabs will, in theory, open in the 'last window opened'.. though in practise if you constantly use the same setup over & over, through reboots with 'restore apps after reboot' etc, then you'll find it will settle to one window, repeatably, but not really one you can dictate. I've never figured out a way to 'enforce' this over time. It picks the one it ...

Well I found my answer. A DVI-D Dual-Link card does indeed accommodate dual monitors. They have two sets of pins - one for each monitor (see, e.g., https://components101.com/connectors/dvi-connector). So yes, I do need a splitter cable. Below is an example of a DVI-D Dual Link Video Card with a splitter cable. The picture shows a VGA version but DVI version ...

Another user's post in How to use a Windows tablet as a drawing tablet? goes like this: There's an app called VirtualTablet that I believe does what you're asking. You install it on your tablet/laptop and on your desktop, and it lets you use the tablet as an input for the desktop. It won't have all of the features of a drawing tablet, and there might be ...

"i want use it with an another laptop, and i don't understand why they isn't found an adapter :)" Full-featured USB-C port usually does have the capability to switch into Displayport mode, but the DisplayPort cannot turn itself into ALT-DP Type-C mode. That's why you can see a lot of dongles that connect Type-C port to DP cable (direction from Type-C-host ...

CTRL + ALT + PrtScn should do this, although there has to be an open window on the desktop that you want to screenshot. source

I had the same issue and I figured it out. I have a Mac. In System Preferences, Display: when setting the arrangement of the 2 monitors, make sure that the borders of the monitors are touching each other. That should fix the issue. If there is a gap, then you will have issue.

Turns out that you CAN span n monitors but it's just buried/internal and has no UI. Save your RDP file, and open it in Notepad. Everyone's RDP file is different but yours may look like this: full address:s:x.x.x.x:3389. prompt for credentials:i:1. administrative session:i:1. screen mode id:i:2. span monitors:i:1. use ...

See the link in Jason's post, it has good information but I'll expand the full solution here. This is a 'newer' feature in RDP available WAY after the OP asked the question. And I SWEAR I saw this QA someone else on SO but can't find it now if someone wants to dig for it and mark as duplicate. Here's the new way to do this: 1) Run the command "mstsc /l"...

It's unbelievably stupid, but I finally found out that the reason seems to be the docking station I'm using for my notebook. When I connect the cable to the HDMI port of the docking station, it gives the problems described above. When I use the HDMI port of the notebook itself, the active signal resolution changes automatically without any issue. This ...

You could also use a hardware device such as this to reduce the strain on your graphics card/monitor doing the scaling. See HDMI Splitter 4K 60Hz 1X2 Multi-Resolution Output (MRO) by J-Tech Digital HDMI 2.0: https://www.amazon.com/Splitter-Multi-Resolution-J-Tech-Digital-downscale/dp/B0839PRQ2V

I am aware of two possible solutions: DELOCK 63928 + mDP to Dp Cable and Wacom Link Plus Search was mildly frustrating, all other adapters I found work backwards, connecting HDMI/Dp monitor to USB-C device.

I dont think this issue is specific to your setup - Windows and multi monitors have always been a little funky. Ive never found a good solution, but this is best ive come up with: Physically unplugging the monitor (video cable) - Windows notices, my other monitors flicker and all open windows are re-arranged onto my remaining 2 screens. Works, but its kind ...

Okay, so here is what I ended up with. I've been using this setup for close to a year now and it's really worked out good for me. The only quirk is that the windows collect to one monitor when switching but, since I'm on my work machine all day and not switching back and forth, this isn't a big deal to me. What I did was: plug monitors 1, 2 & 3 into a ...

There is also a PowerToys from Microsoft. I.e. you don't need to trust a third-party developer and it's free. It has a feature called FancyZones where you can divide your monitors into zones(grid) and have the windows snap to that grid that you have configured. The trick is to move the PowerToys configruation window to the display/monitor that you want to ...

A recent article reviewing existing solutions that must work on win10.

Just providing another method here: (Assuming using Windows 10) Press Win + Tab to enter the Timeline/Activity View. Right click on the off-screen window, then choose Snap to left or Snap to right. The underlying mechanism is the same as other methods listed here, which is forcing Windows to position the off-screen window to a known and accessible location....

Games often change some display settings in full-screen mode, but don't do that in windowed mode. They may change the resolution, but also other parameters of the display that may interfere with their handling of it. When the screens are in Duplicate mode, the changes propagate to both of them. I believe that this is what is happening in your case. Although ...

I attached a debugger and figured out that the program cannot register the hotkey Win+Alt+N. On my system, that hotkey was already registered by Microsoft OneNote. Disabling OneNote made the tool work. I am referring to this tray icon: Newer versions of NegativeScreen show a warning and do not crash. However, they do not have the feature of inverting a ...

Your switch apparently does not support EDID in a smart way, or the TV does not furnish any, as otherwise the resolution change would have been automatic. The solution would be using some product that allows easy switching between resolutions. This will require an extra step (usually a click) when switching between the displays. An example of such a ...

See my comment under this answer, rewritten here as a list: Change Gnome "Tweaks/workspaces" to "workspaces span displays" Open the file in evince. Move the application window to that additional monitor and close it there. Reopen any other file with evince. It should open on the secondary monitor now. This also works when PDF files are opened from the ...

I'm afraid there's nothing to "turn off" to achieve this. What you need is accurate colour calibration. Without it you don't actually know which is correct, if either. What you are seeing is the independent profiles for each of your displays being handed off as you transition the image from one to the other. Some systems & structures can do this 'live'...

One very simple trick that worked for me (after trying a few others) was simply to switch off the monitor you don't want the Citrix session to "invade" and then choosing the full-screen option. Afterwards you turn on the monitor again and presto! (to be clear: Only tested with HDMI/DP monitors and Ubuntu 20.04. Using another OS and/or DVI/VGA may yield ...

As standard, many GPU's will set the same refresh rate for both monitors. So, once you plug in your 2nd monitor, the GPU wil choose a refresh rate which both monitors are capable of. So your GPU will set both monitors to 60Hz, and thus your primary monitor won't see more than 60fps. However, given your GPU you should be able to change this: - Right-click ...

I ended up needing to install a new driver. I installed form the nvidia driver page itself (https://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx). They have a search to help you figure out which driver you need. Now my machine only sees the monitor and will not display on the laptop screen, but at least the hdmi connection is working

Your card doesn't support dual monitors. DVI-D Dual Link supports resolutions above 1920 x 1200 or "double" the speed of "single link". Unfortunately it has nothing to do with the number of monitors. You need a new card with the proper number of outputs. Dual DVI cards are plentiful and cheap on eBay.

A puzzle since it look like you have covered all the bases. I have a surface pro 6 with lower cpu specs but the same 620 UHD video and using a mini-dvi port and it works with the drivers on the original machine, flawlessly.

There is DVI-D (digital video interface - digital: dual link) port which your might be but this would still not be there to solve the problem you have.

Sorry, the "D" in "DVI-D" stands for "digital only", unlike "DVI-I" which stands for "digital and analog". Read all about it in Wikipedia Digital Visual Interface. For two monitors, you need a video card with two ports. Or a really wide monitor that can do the work of two. Or a DisplayPort that can do daisy-chaining. You say that your card is the NVIDIA ...

Because HDMI is a digital signal and VGA is an analogue signal you need a converter to connect between the HDMI output and the VGA input not an adapter. You need to look for the ones that actually convert the signal, state the product specs and whether or not they require external power to operate. Be wary of cheap adapters that show only a cable having ...
