    Exhibition auto display of presentations selected


    Not a very good question title - sorry!

    We have a number of static history displays in the local Priory which gets a lot of visitors. To augment this I want to set up a number of Powerpoint presentations about different historical aspects. That much is easy. The problem is how to run them.
    Some of these wishes may not be practical or even feasible.
    • I would prefer the power to only be on when someone is wanting to look at presentation. That could be done via a timer switch triggered by visitor. Monitor and PC are set to come on as soon as power is applied. After enough time has been allowed for visitor to view all presentations if they wish, power to PC and monitor is switched off.
    • Powerpoint needs to automatically display a menu e.g. Press 1 for presentation 1, 2 for presentation 2, etc. I assume I will need PowerPoint for the web for this.
    • At end of each presentation the menu display is re-loaded ready for next selection.
    • I don't want visitor trying to access anything else on PC so they need to be locked out of that (not that there would be anything on it other than OS and PP player.

    The PowerPoint aspects I can probably sort out myself (but still would welcome suggestions)

    Technology - an old PC running Windows 7 (so maybe I am in the wrong forum!) and LED monitor. Standard keyboard and mouse.

    What I am not sure about is how to set things up so that Windows and the PP display is loaded when power is applied. I know the former should be possible via the BIOS and the latter by using the old Startup folder that used to run programs automatically on startup but which seems to have been hidden in later versions of WIndows.

    I have some ideas on how to do this but I may be barking up the wrong tree and someone out there may already have done this and may be able to point to the correct tree.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this - hopefully you will have some pointers!

    :)

    Multiple display selection not present


    Went from upgrade 10130 with both monitors in extended mode to a clean install of 10130. Multiple display selection is not present. Both monitors are in Mirror mode at the present. (both showing the same thing). Connected devices only show 1 monitor. Graphics is on the Mother board. (I run W8.1 on same machine without any display issue.)

  3. I want to lock my computer's display orientation as landscape. In Display Settings, I don't find a turn off auto-rotate option.

    You can refer the steps below to turn-off the Auto-rotate settings.

    • Go to Search. Type Settings.
    • Click on System.
    • Click on Display. Select Advanced displays settings.
    • And check if it present over there.

    Driver and/or display problem (AMD)

    Try this:

    • Right click on a blank area of your desktop and select "Display Properties"
    • Select "Advanced Display Settings"
    • Select "Display Adapter Properties"
    • Click on "List all Modes"
    • Select the preferred display mode. Something with at least 60Hz.
    • Then select your setting you want
    • See if the option came back
