  1. Prevent windows on 2nd monitor from minimizing?


    Is there a way in Windows 10 to prevent windows on my second monitor from minimizing every time I click Show Desktop or Alt+Tab? I have DisplayFusion Pro if there's an option there.

    I keep my Discord, Steam friends list, NZXT CAM system monitoring, and occasionally SLOBS on the second monitor. However, whenever I alt+tab out of a game or click Show Desktop, everything minimizes and I have to manually open the windows again. It's kind of annoying when I need to quickly mess with something on Streamlabs OBS or something else while in-game. Thanks!

    Windows 10 2nd Monitor will not hold applications...

    I am running Windows 10 on a laptop with a 2nd Monitor...

    When I move applications or browsers to the 2nd monitor they keep getting reset to the screen on the laptop. How do I prevent this from happening?

    Color Display on 2nd monitor

    I am using Windows 10 on a Dell laptop with a 2nd monitor which has been working fine. For some unknown reason I have suddenly lost the full color range on the 2nd monitor. I don't know if I have changed some setting by accident or what. I have tried
    resetting the defaults but that didn't change anything on the 2nd monitor. The primary screen on the laptop continues to work fine. Any suggestions what needs to be done to restore the full color range on monitor #2?

    2nd Monitor in Windows 10

    Unlike other posts on the subject, my system partially recognises the 2nd monitor.

    I was running my HD TV thru HDMI as a second monitor under Win 7.1 successfully. I upgraded to Win 10, and the system does not detect the tv. When I boot up, the windows logo appears on the TV, but after logging on I only get a blank screen. I have tried
    various 2nd monitor setting, tried dectecting in the display settings and control panel, with no success. The fact that I get theWin logo suggests that whilst booting up the system is using only the BIOS settings and therefore recognising the TV. After logging
    on it seems to use the windows settings.

    Any suggestions?
