  1. Multiple monitor issue


    I recently had to replace my hard drive. I have been using multiple screens 2 and my desktop showed 3 monitors in 'display' I only had 2 & my office told me to delete one. did that, now nothing is coming up when I plug in my 2nd monitor. Can't get settings to stay up to even identify monitors. I need a drink

    Restore window issue in Window 10 1903 when extra Monitor

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    To have a better clarity on the issue and guide you accordingly, kindly help us with the following information:



    • Is the issue specific to DBeaver or does it happen on all the applications?


    The issue could probably be because of the secondary monitor not having its own taskbar. I suggest you to try the steps listed below and check if it works.



    • Right click the Taskbar on your primary monitor and choose Taskbar Settings.
    • Enable Show Taskbar on all the displays under
      Multiple Displays,
      and exit Settings.
    • Now, try restoring a minimized window to see if it works.


    Regards,

  4. Multiple monitor issue

    Issues while installing a second monitor in Windows 10

    Really? I get a canned answer and nothing else? I posted that I had tried everything that I could find posted online. I did read the post that Andre suggested multiple times prior to posting this request for help. None of it helped.

    My computer does not recognize that there is a second monitor is plugged in. The small step of changing the settings so I can put stuff on the second monitor ISN'T the issue. I am not that dumb. in the device manager there is only the single monitor listed
    at one point there was a unknown device listed but my computer did not know if it was a monitor or a printer.

    There has to be someone out there that knows how to fix this

    Please Help
