Nvidia Surround question!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

So I am sitting in front of my new triple screen surround set up and loving it.

However, I want to know if there is an application available which lets you maximize an application to fill only the screen that it is in rather than stretch across the whole lot?

Help me out please?

Some people suggested Matrox PowerDesk but I can't find that for download?

Cheers

How easy is the surround feature to switch on/off?

If it's easy, I recommend switching to extended mode while usnig the desktop and switching to surround to game...
Extended mode treats each monitor as an individual.


If it's difficult to switch between them, ignore this comment

Well.... Considering I had to arrange my monitors in the Nvidia CP so they are set out right... I don't think I want to have to configure it again everytime.

There really isn't a way to make it only span one screen. You just can't maximize the program and have to adjust the window. I only switch to surround when playing certain games, otherwise it is just a pain in the butt

I had a look at it this morning and it offers no option that lets me maximise to one screen only.

I could just have surround off but I kinda like it and setting up the screen layout with bezel correction everytime I want it again is annoying.
