Configuring Multiple Displays

Configuring Multiple Displays

When using the Extend recommended option to display to your dual monitors, you may like to modify the default settings, such as rearranging the order and resolution of the monitors.

Follow these steps:

  1. Press the Windows Key.
  2. Type Display and go to the Display Settings


  1. Under the "Select and rearrange displays" section, drag and drop each display to rearrange them according to their physical layout on your desktop.

Note: If you are not sure which screen you are selecting, click the Identify button. This will momentarily show on each screen the corresponding number [1] and [2].


  1. Scroll down to the section Scale and Layout
  2. To adjust the display size, change the Resolution settings (the lower the numbers, the more the display is zoomed in).

To determine which of the dual monitors will display the primary screen (that contains the primary desktop and Start menu):

  1. In the section Select and rearrange displays, highlight the screen (1 or 2) that you would prefer is the primary display.
  2. Scroll down to the section Multiple displays
  3. Check the box Make this my main display
  4. When you are finished all your adjustments, close the Settings window.
