    Hi Tim,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to change the settings to Extended Monitor and check if it helps.

    Please follow below steps:

    • Right Click any ware of the Desktop, and launch Personalization.
    • Go to dual monitor settings under personalization, and change it Extended Monitor.
    Please get back to us for future support, we’ll be glad to assist you further.



    Thank you.

    Problems with cut/paste in multi-monitor desktops

    There is a feature called snap that you can turn off. You can click on Start > type Display Settings, click on it > Multitasking > Snap. There you can turn it off and see if it helps.

    As for setting a different wallpaper for each monitor you have, kindly follow the steps below:

    • To start, right-click on the desktop of either monitor and select Personalize from the context menu.
    • Settings will open to the personalization section where you'll want to choose Background from the list on the left. Then scroll down to select your picture. There you can browse for additional wallpapers too.
    • Once you've found the ones you like, right-click one and select the monitor you want it set as the background.

    Hope this helps and if you have any other questions, don't hesitate to post back.

    Regards.

    desktop monitor not turning on

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds
