    Controlling where an application is displayed using multiple monitors.


    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. *Smile
    Thanks in advance!

  2. Windows 10 Disconnected Displays-where did they go?

    On mine I can reconnect the monitors through the Nvidia Control panel under "Set up multiple displays"-It is a pain as Nvidia does not remember where the monitors are located so I have to go back into the Windows Display Settings and rearrange them.

  3. Windows 10 does not recognize dual monitors

    Hi,

    Welcome to the Microsoft Community.

    What is the make and model of the computer?

    Please follow the steps:

    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display\Screen Resolution

    and make sure both monitors are shown and "Extend desktop to this display" is selected for each monitor.

    If both monitors are not shown, try clicking on "Detect"

    Check Device manager to see if the video card or cards (if you are using more than one) and both monitors are shown in the list of devices.

    You can also try updating video card driver:

    Follow the steps:

    1. Press Windows key+X.

    2. Device manager and select the video card.

    3. Right click on the driver and select update.

    Connect multiple monitors to your PC

    Note: The above mentioned steps are also applicable to Windows 10.

    Thank You.
