    Dual Monitor Problem


    Overall I'm delighted with Windows 10 but I have one relatively minor problem with my dual monitors. The taskbar on the second monitor won't auto-hide. It just sits there.

    Any suggestions?

  3. DUAL Monitor problems

    Hair Tearing Time

    I am having more issues getting dual displays to function properly on W10. It seems to be two fold.
    Resolution and PnP detection. Same two monitors on Win 7 machine work just fine.

    Here is the setup.

    • 4 Desktops.
    • 3 run Win7 one runs Win10
    • Startech KVM 4 port dual mon KVM switch. ( #1=1 DVI, #2=VGA )
    • Two identical HP l2045W monitors.

    Win 10 machine yesterday I dragged window over to #2 and it was much bigger. Checked an resolution had changed itself for some reason. I reset so they matched and then the #2 just went black.

    Checked by switching to Win7 machine and it was fine. Monitors and KVM doing as they should.

    When the win 10 machine boots mon #2 has warning from monitor that there is a resolution miss match and a few seconds later shuts off. I check settings and in Win 10 the resolution is set as is should be which matched the suggested resolution on the warning from monitor.

    I check the device manager on both machines.

    In Win 7 I have two PnP monitors as it should be. Win 10 it says I have one PnP and one non-PnP ?

    As stated it is only Window 10 that appears to be brain dead with respect to dual monitors. Win 7 works fine every time. Why won't Win 10 recognize only one mon as PnP and is this the bug that's causing my problem when I switch with KVM?

    Also...when I can get second screen working the mouse won't travel over.

    ( There are no updated drivers etc. for monitors )

    One more thing I would like to add is that the task bar on the second monitor does not show time and the system tray. How do I enable that?
