  1. Launching a program when a second monitor is attached.


    Hi all,

    I am looking to use Task Scheduler or similar to start an application every time I plug in a secondary monitor. EG:

    When only using my laptop monitor, I decide to plug in a secondary monitor to my HDMI port and when that action is logged is forces an EXE or other Windows based program to run. I am yet to find a way to find a way to trigger this. HAs anyone attempted this before or have any clues on how to campture the event ID to relate the EXE to it?

    :)

    Touch Screen as Second Monitor - Apps launching on main monitor


    Hi,

    Does anyone have any experience with using a touch screen as a second monitor.

    I have managed to get it to use the touch functionality, so I can press on the touch screen and it will launch Edge, for example. However, my next problem is that it is launching the applications on my main monitor.

    Is there some setting I need to change so that it launches on the second monitor.

    For some more detail, we are trying to set up Promethean V5 smart panels for a classroom setup. There will be the V5 board connected to a PC and the PC will also have a monitor. The PC monitor has to stay as the main monitor and the setup will be extended (this is not an issue when setting up as a duplicate screen, for obvious reasons).

    If anyone has any useful tips or suggestions on things to try I would really appreciate them.

    Thanks

    issue with second monitor

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand the inconvenience caused. I will be glad to assist you with this.

    I would suggest you to download the display driver from the manufacturer's website. If there are no driver for windows 10, download the latest driver and install it in compatibility mode by following the steps below:

    After you have downloaded the driver:



    a) Right-click on the setup file of the driver and select "Properties".

    b) Select "Compatibility" Tab.

    c) Place a check mark next to "Run this program in Compatibility mode" and select the

    appropriate operating system from the drop down list.

    d) Let the driver install and then check the functionality

    I would also suggest you to refer to the link below for steps to set up dual monitor in your system.

    Connect a second monitor or projector (Applies to windows 10)

    You can also refer to the suggestion by Karthik from this link
    for more information.

    Hope this helps. Do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to help.
