    Problem With Full Screen Video With Multiple Apps


    In Windows 8.1, if I split my display in half - I could have multiple apps like Internet Explorer and Visual Basic open. Then if I was watching a video on YouTube in full screen mode, the video would still only be displayed in the half of the screen so I could still multitask and do something else in the other half. However if I try to do this in Windows 10, the YouTube video in full screen mode does actually put the video in full screen and takes up the whole display. Is it possible to just get it to display in half of the screen like in Windows 8.1 or is this not yet possible? Was a really handy feature!!

    Thanks,
    Wailun

    :)

  2. Problem with 10 Win User

    Windows 10 Problem

    After I updated Windows 10 today as I was instructed, I can no longer get on the internet. My wifi no longer shows up to click on it. It was working fine until I allowed the install. I have tried restarting the HP Spectre x 369 laptop and the router,
    but this has not helped. (I am using a borrowed Apple computer to search for a solution.) I need help to get back online. Can anyone help or tell me who I might contact for help?

    Full screen with multiple monitors

    Hi Adrian,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you need to get Windows 10 full screen / maximize to span multiple monitors rather than just one monitor.

    Please answer the below question to assist you better.

    What is the make and model of the computer?

    Follow the below methods and check if it helps.

    Method 1:

    Press Windows Key + P Keyboard Shortcut

    1. Close all open programs.

    2. Hold down the Windows key and press the
    P key on your keyboard.

    3. Select one of the following display style options

    o PC Screen Only

    o Duplicate

    o Extend

    o Second Screen Only

    Method 2: Display Settings Menu

    • Close all open programs.
    • Right-click an empty area on your desktop, and click Display Settings.
    • Click the Multiple Displays drop-down list, and select
      Duplicate these displays
      or Extend these displays or
      Show only on 1
      or Show only on 2.

      If you cannot see the second monitor(s) listed, click Detect. If this does not work, try to reconnect the cables on your monitor, restart the computer and repeat steps 1 and 2.
    • Click Identify to see which monitor is number 1 (Primary Monitor) and number 2 (Secondary Monitor).

    • Click Keep Changes if you are prompted to save the changes made to the display settings.

    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.
