    Multiple Desktop question

    I've been trying to do something with multiple desktops in 10 with no success.

    Is there a way - if you're using multiple monitors - to have different desktops displayed on different monitors at the same time?

    Multiple Desktop question

    hello, I think it require 3rd party software ,its been a long time since I did it and I don't remember what I used to do it ,, you can extend it across 2 monitors and have different programs open on each monitor ,I just set mine up to see how it works so I could make a suggestion ,I have a video card with all 3 types of connection ,vga/hdmi and dvi, and I have it hooked to my portable Raspberry Pi screen ,and I can open apps and drag them to the second screen and work with other apps on my main screen, when you open an app it open on the main screen and you just drag it across to the other screen.

    the monitor on the left is my main with IE open and the right is my portable Pi box with 2 apps open on it

    Yep mine does it automatically, I didn`t have to change a thing, I Love it. *Biggrin

    Just put some pictures in a folder and use slideshow, picking that folder, as the desktop background.
