Separate displays on Windows



  • I'm a Mac user and I'm setting up a project on a PC and have an emergency question for Windows users:

    How do you get 2 projectors to show up as separate displays, but keep all the menu bars and working windows just on your desktop monitor?

    Windows keeps sending pop-ups to the projectors instead of displaying them on the monitor where I can actually read them.

    Windows 10 :

    To create seperate displays we use "Project to a second screen" search it up in your search bar and press Duplicate. To re-arrange your screens, look for Display settings to set things like Primary Screen, etc.


    Regarding the taskbar

  • thanks @juriaan


    We managed to get hold of an iMac for the project, so i'll try that. If we need to go back to Windows, i'll go through your process....

    Hahaha come on, it couldnt be that frustating that you requested an iMac 



  • @juriaan

    its going to sound like i'm making excuses, but i'm working with a group of students and trying to get them to solve all the problems themselves. none are pc users, and the multiple display issues were stalling us at the first hurdle and preventing us from even getting started with Isadora. I found an iMac in the next room, not being used, so I blagged that and got them up and running over lunchtime. 
    the amount of equipment lying around, gathering university dust is astounding. and frustrating.
