2 monitors off sli 280's Q's

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys just a few question about setting up 2 screens

Second screen is a Acer AC711 crt (native res 1024x768 @ 85hz)

So i plugged them into card 1 booted in and entered nvidia cp set them up as to extend desktop.

Now i want to be able to game on my 24 inch and still have access to some desktop icons via the second screen so i can run other app's like Team speak Internet ex or whatever.

I wanted to leave all my original desktop icons on my main screen and just create copies of certain desktop shortcuts that i wanted access to and shift them over to my extended desktop (second screen).

I did that but each time i reboot the copies of desktop shortcuts just appear on my main 24 inch display and all my other shortcuts are all over the place.

Is there a way to do what i'm after.

Never played with multi mon setup so your suggestion would be great thanks..

Win7 is a pain in the neck for that. You may need to turn off any auto-arranging options on the desktop, but beyond that, you're pretty stuck.
Your only real option is to find some kind of icon bar that you can force to remain put on the second display to bypass the annoying icon relocation.

Auto arrange was off

What about a copy of the task bar and not the shortcuts can this be done instead?

Ok so now after about the 5-6 reboots it seems like it's saving the copies of desktop shortcuts to the second screen (extended desktop)

Don't know why but i hope it stays this way
