Controlling When Application Is Displayed Using Multiple Monitors?

Oct 2, 2015

I am running Widows 10 Pro, 64-bit with 3 monitors using an Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Ti graphics card and have an Intel 7i-4930K CPU with 32 gig of RAM. For the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties I have it configured so that it shows all taskbars on all displays.

The behavior that currently exists is that if I launch an application from any monitor it opens on the one it was last open on. For example, if I have Notepad open on monitor 3, close it, launch the application from monitor 1 it actually opens on monitor 3.

The behavior I would like is for the application to open on the monitor I launch it from. For example, if I have Notepad open on monitor 3, close it, launch the application on monitor 1 it is displayed on monitor 1. It would be wonderful if I could launch Notepad on monitor 1 and have it display there, launch Notepad on monitor 2 and have it display there and finally launch Notepad on monitor 3 and have it display there.

Is this possible and/or a setting I just am not aware of in Windows 10? Granted, Notepad is not the most exciting application but it was just an example.

App Launch Location When Using Multiple Monitors?

Oct 15, 2015

I use multiple monitors while at work (As I assume most people do now). One quirk I have seen on Windows 8/8.1 and now Windows 10 is how the start menu launches applications. Now that Windows has start menu access on all monitors is there a way to force the apps to launch on the monitor they are being launched from? For example, I use the start menu on Monitor 3 I would expect the app to launch on Monitor 3 not Monitor 1.

Graphic Cards :: DPI Scaling With Multiple Monitors

Jan 4, 2016

I have a Lenovo T450s as my primary machine issued to me at work. It has an Intel Integrated Graphics Card and a 1920 X 1080 screen. I have two additional monitors, a 28 inch 4K Samsung, and a 24 inch 1080p Samsung. I have the following DPI settings.

Laptop Monitor - 100%
4K Monitor - 150% (anything lower and it is completely unusable, everything is super tiny)
24 inch 1080 - 100%

If I set my Laptop screen as my primary screen the laptop screen and the 24 inch 1080 monitor look share, but most apps look fuzzy, sometimes somewhat noticeable, other times it is very noticeable when moved to the 4K monitor with DPI scaling set at 150%.

The opposite happens if I set the 4k monitor as the primary monitor and restart. Then the 4K monitor looks very sharp and clear. However then the laptop screen and 24 inch 1080 monitor look fuzzy and blurry.

Visual Studio 2013, SSMS 2014, Chrome are the application that are bothering me the most right now. There are a small number of apps like Edge that seem to work fine regardless of whatever the DPI settings are.

I was excited to see Windows 10 added per monitor DPI scaling and claimed to fix the issues with DPI scaling on Windows 8 when having multiple monitors of different pixel densities. However from what I've seen they really haven't fixed much.

Apps :: Finding Utilities For Multiple Monitors?

Jan 27, 2016

In my home theatre I have a Win 10 Pro PC , set up for Extended Display set up for:

- a large 4k TV (the default), with high res settings (Monitor 2)

- a small legacy 17" display, low-res settings (Monitor 1)

The large screen is the default screen, as that's what I need to be displayed when watching media, and controlling things via a wireless keyboard on the couch.

The purpose of the small display is simply so that I don't have to have to keep the large display on when:

-doing minor config/setup work

-listening to music via iTunes

-viewing the 'current' song being played on my digital cable box


It's more or less working well, but THE ISSUE IS THIS:

When working when both displays are on, and the active window in on the large display, I can select it and drag it over to the small display to work with. But when the large display is powered off, I am blind ; all I see is the task bar and whatever I launch goes , of course, goes to the default display.

-Is there any tool or utility I can use to virtually see the open window on the active monitor and so I can drag it over?

-Is there any tool or utility , like TeamViewer has, where there is a top level menu "Next Monitor" to manage the screens.

Ironically, when I do use Team Viewer from another room, its perfect as I can flip between monitors at will (as I am starting on the 'default' screen). But when I am in front the physical machine, in front of the small monitor, I dont have that option.

What I kinda need is the multiple monitor option of Duplicated displays, but that does not work because of the different resolutions.

I can use Show Desktop Only on 1, as I cant get there ( ie a right click will always show up on the large screen only as is the default.

I need to power up the large display, drag the window (eg iTunes) to the smaller display, and then turn off the large TV.

Customization :: Window Focus Changes When Working On Multiple Monitors

Dec 31, 2015

I'm having some problems after my Windows upgrade from 7 to 10...

Basically, I'm working on a multiple monitor system. When I move my mouse around the screen, windows changes the focus from the window that I'm working in (a spreadsheet for example), and starts entering data in any window i mouse-over.

I found a partial solution in the following thread.....but this only disables the window popping-up (the focus still changes).

Performance :: System Image - Controlling What Gets Backed Up

Dec 5, 2015

I just re-installed Windows 10. I'd prefer NOT to do that any more than necessary, which includes after a Windows upgrade causes a problem.

SO, I'm trying to set up Windows 10 to make a system image (periodically). It WORKS fine, but instead of just taking the system disk, it's ALSO backing up one of my other disks. I BELIEVE it's because the other disk has a page file on it.

I'm putting the main pagefile on the NON-SYSTEM disk because my system is on an SSD and it's recommended (from what I've read) to minimize keeping things on there that get beat on regularly... BUT, as I understand it, any disk that has a pagefile on it is going to be included in the system image. This is a problem 'cause the non-system disk it's backing up has a couple TERABYTES of images on it along with the pagefile.

SO, can I tell Windows 10 Image backup NOT to mess with the other disk?
OR, do I put a little partition on the other disk just to hold the pagefile?
OR, do I just say, "screw it" and put the whole pagefile on the system SSD?
OR, do I find a 3rd party tool to make a system image?

Desktop Background Is Only Displayed And Nothing Else?

Nov 6, 2015

I was recently having some problems with widows 10 so I had the bright idea to Rest my PC using the options in the settings. I then chose to "Keep my files" as I have documents that I would like not to be deleted. So I let this run and nothing out of the ordinary occurred and everything seemed to be going well. Eventually the OS boots up and I get just the the windows 10 background (the one with 4 blue windows tiles). I see this and nothing else. No windows button, no desktop apps, and my keyboard does nothing, ie no ctrl+alt+del does anything. All I have displayed is my internet connection and the ease of access button. I do have a cursor though, but it is useless as right clicking or left clicking does nothing.

Recycle Bin Unable To Be Displayed?

I have tried selecting the Recycle Bin check box in Desktop Icon settings but it fails to take. Whilst it is checked I have tried clicking Apply. However, close out the Desktop Icon settings and reopen to find the checkbox is again unchecked. Right Clicking space on the Desktop and selecting View reveals that Show Desktop Icons is active. I have tried deselecting and reselecting to no avail. I've tried the sequence some five times, all with the same results.

Change The Displayed Title Of Folders?

Feb 10, 2016

Is it possible to change the displayed title of folders, which have been pinned to the Quick Access list to something other than that of the folder-name itself? IOW, change it to a title of my choosing.

I do realize I could simply change the folder-name itself, but that's less than ideal under this system's circumstances since this it has specific folders backed up daily, and they occasionally need to be restored, which would overwrite this change each time a backup was applied.

I recently upgraded to 10 but I have a slight issue with 'My Documents'.

No Thumbnails Displayed In Photos Section Of Search Results

I got the free Windows 10 upgrade yesterday and everything seemed to work really well until I tried using the Search Bar.The problem is that although search results are returned (The indexing seems to be correct) the images displayed under the Photos section are mostly missing their thumbnails which makes the feature pretty useless.Some images have thumbnails but most don't and it isn't any specific file type that does or not display it just seems random.

Browser/Email :: PDF File Displayed Incompletely By Edge

When opening this link to a pdf-file in Edge, figure 1 is incomplete. When opening the same link in Chrome, it is complete.

- How to verify on another computer that the figure is incomplete in Edge?
- Is it a bug of Edge, or is the pdf-file corrupt?

I am surprised because many years ago the pdf-format guaranteed that a printed document was identical to the original.

Apps :: HP G62-b32sa / Mail - The Linked Image Cannot Be Displayed

Jul 31, 2015

I have recently upgraded my HP G62-b32sa laptop from Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit to Windows 10. I have set up two Outlook email accounts in the Windows 10 Mail app. In emails on both accounts, I receive the following error message in any area where an image should be:

"The linked image cannot be displayed. The file may have been moved, renamed, or deleted. Verify that the link points to the correct file and location."

This is accompanied with a small red cross in the upper left corner.

To rectify this I have reset Windows 10, but the problem still persists. I also notice online that this issue has been persistent with Office Outlook 2010, but trying solutions (such as deleting Temp folder) do not work in Windows 10 Mail.

EDIT: I created a new local user account, and set up my email in the Mail app. Surprisingly, the pictures work! So now the question is, why are the pictures not showing up in my user account?

Browser/Email :: IE11 Favorites In Menu Bar Displayed Incorrectly

Aug 19, 2015

Favorites have become inaccessible during the process of Organizing Favorites. My IE Favorites were on OneDrive long before upgrading to Windows 10. I have used IE11 in Windows 10 for 2 weeks. Since using Organize Favorites in one sub-folder the IE Favorites I see in the Favorites menu are no longer what is on OneDrive.

Clicking on Favorites in the Menu Bar I see only the one folder I Organized, with one sub-folder, and the sub-folder is empty. Clicking on Organize Favorites, I see all of the Favorites I expect to see, with the one folder I had previously Organized at the top of the list, sorted out of alphabetic sequence. If I look at Favorites on OneDrive they look normal. If I look at this Registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerUser Shell FoldersFavorites

The data in that key points to the OneDrive Favorites folder as expected. The IE11 Favorites Bar is visible and active even though the Favorites menu is hosed.

One more piece of weirdness - clicking on the star icon in the upper right corner (View Favorites, feed and history) results in the correct display of Favorites. So Favorites accessed by the star icon and by Organize Favorites (under Favorites in the Menu Bar) are displayed correctly, but clicking on Favorites in the Menu Bar results in a useless display.

Edit added - I turned IE11 off in Control Panel, Programs and Features, Turn Windows features on or off. After a required restart I turned IE11 back on. Favorites displayed in the Menu Bar are incorrect. How can I reset Favorites in the Menu Bar to show the contents of the Favorites folder on OneDrive?
