  1. How to display desktop on three monitors simultaneously in Windows 10?


    I have a new installation of windows 10 on my HPTC.

    I want to mirror the desktop on three monitors simultaneously and not that I think this is the limiting factor, but one connected VGA, one connected HDMI, and the third wirelessly, using Miracast

    I note that Windows 10 will allow me to duplicate the desktop on monitors 1&2, or 1&3, but not on all three monitors at the same time.

    My Googling this question seemed to indicate it was a limitation of Windows, but I know this worked on my previous Windows setups admittedly, all prior to Win 10

    Can you assist?

    :)

  2. Desktop icons disappeared with 2nd monitor, Windows 10

    Hello,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    1. Did the desktop icons disappear from both the displays when the main display was switched?

    2. Which built version of Windows are you currently using?

    When you setup multiple monitors, you will get options to personalize the display according to your needs, these options are:-

    1. Duplicate these displays- Shows the entire desktop on both displays. The second or other monitors mirror the primary monitor.
    2. Extend these displays - Stretch the desktop across the two displays. The desktop screen of your PC is extended across all the detected monitors and allows you to have a desktop screen that spans across all monitors.

    If the display settings are set to Extend these display, all the launched application will be displayed in the monitor which has ‘Make this my main display’ option enabled under the ‘Multiple displays’
    settings. The desktop icons will only be displayed on the main display.

    You can refer the following article on How
    to Setup Multiple Monitors in Microsoft Windows 10
    and
    Set up dual monitors on Windows 10

    for more information.

    to the above questions, in order to assist
    you with appropriate troubleshooting steps.

    Hope it helps.
