Multi-Monitor Feature in Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit For Gamers

No any other Windows version has supported multiple monitors so well and offered so many options similar to Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit or 32 bit. Multiple monitors are a great way to maximize your screen real estate, spread out your work, divide your work space, and otherwise break free from the constrains of single monitor computing which brings great convenience especially to gamers because gamers love to split screens and play.

What will you need?

You will need some access monitors, extra set of cables and some extra video ports for it to go around. When you will be running 3-4 monitors most people just buy two inexpensive dual-port video cards for it. My recommendation is to keep the onboard video GPU that came with the motherboard active and managed to squeeze by with a dual-port video card and the one onboard port. This methodology is highly dependent on the combination of motherboard and graphics card you use as some motherboards will not allow you to use the onboard video if an add-on video card is detected. If you have never installed any add-on cards or even cracked open the case of your PC, so it would be might difficult for you in starting phase. More and more people are using multiple monitors and both Microsoft and the monitor/graphics card companies have noticed. As a result multi-monitor users enjoy better native OS support, better hardware, and better driver support than they ever have before.

Setting up multiple monitors under Windows 98 was possible but driver support was good. Windows XP made it a little easier. There was so much swearing, driver uninstalling and reinstalling, cable switching, and animal sacrifice involved that which thing actually caused it to miraculously start working has been lost in all that.

In fact the only thing you will likely have to mess around with is the order the monitors are in. I, for example, have three monitors and keep the center monitor as the primary monitor. Some people like to start the start menu on the farthest left monitor instead of the center.

Click the start menu and type “screen resolution” in the run box for searching the relevant item in Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. Then you will see a screen popping up. There you can detect new displays if they didn’t auto-detect and identify your monitors set the orientation, and shuffle the placement of the monitors around.

On important setting to remember in Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit is to double check before leaving the display menu: make sure that all monitors say “extend these displays” and not “duplicate” or “show desktop only”. You want Windows to treat all your monitors like a giant extension of the desktop.
