  1. How to Show Desktop with Dual Monitors


    I was set up with a new dual monitor system. Under my old system, when I had a remote desktop window on the main window and wanted to back to my tray on that monitor, I simply clicked somewhere in the left monitor and the main monitor showed my desktop with the tray again. But now the remote desktop stays on the main monitor when I do that. I have to minimize it to get my desktop and the tray. Is there any way to change this back to the way I had it?


    Don't know if this is an OS issue, but my old system was Windows 7, and my new system is Windows 10.

    :)

    Screensaver slideshow does not display correctly whith dual monitors set to "extend desktop"

    Objective: I have dual monitors (as an extended desktop, side by side) and want it to show my own pictures as a screensaver slideshow in Windows 10.

    Problem: Only the lower half ot the picture is diplayes in the top half of monitor 1. Monitor 2 is black.

    Addtional observations:

    • In "Screen Saver Settings" the small mock-up display looks fine, however when i select "Preview" the problem with only half the picture displayed occurs also in the preview.
    • The problem does not occur with only one monitor in use
    • The problem does not occur with dual monitors set to "Duplicate these displays"

    Gratefull for all suggestions to solve the problem

    The same picture also work fine as desctop background with different pictures displayed on each monitor.
