How to set up Multiple Displays in Windows 10
Description: This article will show you how to set up multiple displays to work with your computer system using a dedicated video card. While it is possible to set up multiple displays incorporating integrated system video, video cards are often the easiest method to accomplish this task.
- Identify what kind of connections are available with your computer. If it is a desktop that has a video card, look for what ports the video card has. This is because the video card will be used rather than the motherboard connections - this means the motherboard video ports will not work when there is a video card installed.
- Connect the second monitor. If the monitor does not come on, try shutting down the computer and restarting it. If you have a video card, make sure you are plugging the second monitor into the video card.
- Once the monitor comes up, right click on an empty part of your desktop and select Display Settings.
- Choose Identify. A large box will come up that shows the number of the monitor.
- Drag and drop your monitors to the appropriate positions and then Apply the changes.
- Scroll down until you reach Multiple displays. Select Extend these displays from the dropdown menu.
