You should already have seen the islands edit video or photos, some offices, and even room for more hardcore players with computers that contain two screens. In some cases, it’s just a “luxury” look, with the size of the desktop folded. However, having two screens means keep the region more widely, which provides you the best cleaning the windows and distribute the best resources on the computer.

The use of two screens improves even interact with the Windows taskbar. If you have many icons need to extend this feature of the system so that it occupies two lines of the method that we will explain here can alleviate this problem.

If you have a video card with two video output and a screen behind it, it only takes a few minutes to setup Dual Screen. Almost all graphics processing units to the latest come with two video output, regardless of the price.

Determine the outputs

The first step is to know what type of output your video card to the proper use of cables. Connection standards the most common are: VGA, DVI, HDMI. The first type is the old blue connector with 15 pins that transmit analog signals.

This link is also known as HD-15 (HD represents high density and high density) and is the most found in video cards and display devices and display devices and other devices that work with image transfer.

This type of connector carries the video signals of analog type RGBHV (red, green, blue, horizontal and vertical) and is used since the oldest screen of this tube, until the last (with the LCD much more thin).

In contrast, the contact DVI (Digital Visual Interface) is the standard digital which increases the quality of electronic devices. Unlike VGA, this technology takes the digital video signals without compression. Data transmitted in such a manner that each pixel of the original image is faithfully reproduced on the screen, if compatible.

The third and final is a standard HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) which also passes the data without compression and high-quality. It is used in the players, Blu-ray, the latest computers, video game consoles, health, stability, for example.

With one cable, video can be transmitted normally, with the improvement of quality or in high definition along with eight channels of audio. If the output of the video card does not match the input of the display device, it is necessary to buy adapter. However, there is no way to make any adjustment if your GPU doesn’t have two video output.

The composition

After finishing the ride properly on the screen of the video output, you can connect the computer. Don’t be surprised because only one of the screens will be active. The procedure to add the second screen is slightly different depending on the version of your operating system.

XP and Vista

In Windows Vista and XP, this process is very similar. With the operating system download, right-click anywhere on the desktop and select the option “properties” from the context menu that appears.

Go to the tab “settings” (“Display settings” in Windows Vista). You will see an indication of two observers, each of them representing a number. Until that time, one of the screens remains off.

The most common is to position them along, with the adoption of the widescreen format. It is also possible to put one above the other, which is not very common, or in the way that suits you. Now the mouse cursor or an application of that touches the right border of the screen from the left (or vice versa) extend to the other monitor. The same happens with the observers in my head.

It is still possible to set different resolutions on each device, using the rods on the screen of the display properties. However, it is recommended to use the screens in the resolutions themselves, even if they are different from each other. This is about your work area more wide to work with images.

Windows 7

In Windows 7, The configuration scheme of the same simplicity, although it will be a little different. The first thing to be done is Press on the desktop with the right mouse button. To do this, the submenu is displayed, which you must select the option “screen resolution”.

The second screen should be displayed automatically. However, if it does not, you can press the button “detect” to be updated to identify a new relationship. The next step is to determine the Preferences screen the new.

In the “multiple display”, determines the form of integration between the two observers. Format option cited in the previous topic is the “extended these displays”. Thus, the second presentation will be a continuation of the first.

In addition, it is possible to set the resolution and orientation of each of the screens separately, in the same way that occurs in previous versions of Windows. Clicking on the link “Advanced Settings” window is displayed the properties of the video card.

After this setting has been made the first time, you can switch between the display modes of the monitors (“computer only”, “Dupolicar”, “expand” and “show only”) by pressing the choose commands Windows key + P.
