  1. 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 Win10Startech 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 )

    :)

    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?

    Dual Monitor Problem


    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?
