  1. Setting up different monitor profiles between home and work


    Hello. I'm trying to figure out a way to save a little time in the morning depending on where I am working. At home, I have an ultra wide monitor that I hook my work laptop to. Here, I would like to use my monitor as the primary and my laptop as the secondary screen. At work I have two 24" monitors where I would like to use just the monitors and disable the laptop screen I have some programs which for whatever reason will not function right running 3 displays. The laptop is managed so I can't install any software or alter the registry or anything. I was thinking I could use a batch file

    :)

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds

  3. How to display different slideshow wallpapers (backgrounds) on each monitor

    I followed those steps. When right-clicking on the image to select a monitor, I get:

    • Set for all monitors
    • Set for monitor 4
    • Set for monitor 4
    • Set for monitor 4
    • Set for monitor 4

    Setting up different monitor profiles between home and work

    Lost default photo viewer after profile rebuild

    Thanks Brink. I've tried those steps before i started searching Google. After the profile rebuild i don't have the Photo app listed to choose to make it default in either the system settings for default apps or the Open With option.

    I can't even find it doing a search. Seems to have been removed somehow with the profile rebuild, which doesn't make sense.

    Might be helpful to list what i've done Setting up different monitor profiles between home and work :) I've done the open with check, the choose default program in the system menu, tried that in device manager default programs also. I've checked the programs and features Turn windows features on/off and it's not listed there (never thought it was but that was a suggestion), searched the MS Store, it's not listed there either.

    I don't like playing in the registry unless i have defined steps and haven't found anything for this yet, just the Win7 version like in my OP.
