    Multiple Input sources & multiple outputs ie 2 Monitors


    I have Desktop Computernew as of Feb.,2020 "ibuypower" & a PS4gaming device routed thru a 2x2 HDMI switch into two separate Monitors one= 17" & one 27". I see the same Desktop on both monitors simultaneously, based on the choice of the Input. However, I am trying to, when the Computer with Windows 10 is selected, to view the details of a selected item from the Tool Bar on the large monitor and the main Desktop on the separate smaller monitor. I can't find a way to view the two separate 'items' on the two separate Monitors simultaneously. May I be instructed in this some how? Signed, C.H.I., good day.

    :)

    Output audio to multiple devices in Windows 10

    This worked for me, producing output to my laptop speakers and HDMI TV output. However, there was a delay between the outputs, causing an annoying echo to be heard.

    If I were Microsoft, I would find a way to fix this problem, even if it means changing how device drivers work in Windows. (It should be possible to collect input from multiple devices, send it to multiple devices, switch inputs and outputs faster and easier,
    and associate audio with video as a single I/O streams, just as one would want by default and expect by intuition.

    But then my supervisor would tell me that fixing bugs is not important compared to supporting 3D home monitors, which can actually generate income for Microsoft. I would then have to resign from my position as a Principal Software Engineer, my main career
    for 40 years, in disgust.

  3. No tablet mode with multiple monitors connected

    Touch input works fine with multiple monitors, you just have to map the panel to the specific screen. That's not the problem, the tablet mode not being accessible on multiple monitors is.

  4. Multiple Input sources & multiple outputs ie 2 Monitors

    i have a problem to connect 2 monitors.

    Hi Ron,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    • What changes did you make in the BIOS? As making the changes in the BIOS is only recommended by Microsoft if done by the manufacturer.
    • How are you connecting to the 2nd monitor?
    I suggest you to follow the steps from this article below:

    [Applies to Windows 10 as well]

    Regards.
