Arrange Multiple Monitors In Windows XP
One monitor serves as the primary monitor, and this monitor displays the Logon
dialog box when you start your computer. In addition, most programs will display
windows on the primary monitor when you initially open them. You can select
different screen resolutions and different color quality settings for each
monitor. Multiple monitors can be connected to individual video adapters or to a
single video adapter that supports multiple outputs. To configure the
arrangement of multiple monitors:
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display. On the Settings tab, click
Identify to display a large number on each of your monitors. This shows which
monitor corresponds with each icon.
Click the monitor icons and drag them to positions that represent how you want
to move items from one monitor to another, and then click OK or Apply to view
NOTE: The icon positions determine how you move items from one monitor to
another. For example, if you are using two monitors and you want to move items
from one monitor to the other by dragging left and right, place the icons side
by side. To move items between monitors by dragging up and down, place the icons
one above the other. The icon positions do not have to correspond to the
physical positions of the monitors. You can place the icons one above the other
even though your monitors are side by side.
