    Dual monitors on Windows 10


    I did this but they both show the same screen. The main screen is HDI and the other is DVI... Is there a solution for this.
    I want to put 3 on here.

    I want it to show different screens.

    Hi Gina France,

    Do you have it set for extend or duplicate?

    Well, then it should work. Are you saying it's duplicating instead of extending?

    IF it's a true duplicate, when you move the mouse, you will see the pointer moving on both screens; otherwise, you have the same wallpaper on both screens and they aren't duplicates.

    On some video cards DVI and HDMI are output on the same connector as they are both digital. If you have a analog connector and one or both then you can have two screens. Also the same background will be on both screens.

    To have them show different backgrounds in extended mode, you have to enable desktop background slideshow.
    You'll still be able to mount different applications in each.
