    How to change Start-Monitor (when 2 available)

    marc.bosch

      Hi there,

       

      I just went up from 7.0 to 8.0

       

      Can anyone please tell me, where the option is on which (of my two monitors) the application starts?

      (I know that 7.0 was able to do so - had to fix a long-term issue with support) :-)

       

      Regards,

      Marc

          Marc,

           

          The priority of the monitor would be set in the OS, and possibly in the video card's console. Most programs will launch into Monitor 1, as set by your OS, in Display.

           

          What is happening in your case? Which video card do you have, and how are your dual monitors set in the OS?

           

          Good luck,

            Hi wine_snob,

             

            thanks for the quick reply.

             

            My settings:

            nVidia Geforce 8600GT

            Driver: 195.81 beta WHQL

            Left Monitor: Landscape, Samsung P2450 1980x1080

            Right Monitor: Pivot, HannsG HW191 900x1440

            OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 32-Bit

             

            The application always starts on the right one and thereby stays when put on the other monitor (with resize button on the right upper corner) in the 10:16 ratio AND in the 900x1440 resolution.

             

            This problem already occured back with version 7.0

            Back then the support told me to switch "start-monitor" in the Adobe application.

            I just can't find that option in version 8.0

             

            Do you have any idea?

            (while the light bulb above your head starts up - I'll fumble around in the nVidia Control Panel) :-)

             

            Thanks for your help

              Re-configurated the nVidia Panel again - now it works :-)

               

              Regards & Thanks for the help.

                Wow! Music to my ears. Unfortunately, with two potential places to look, it can take a bit of digging. When I got my last workstation, and the builder hooked it up in the studio, he gasps, when my nVidia Quadro only came up on Monitor 1. We looked at each other, and he started over, with apologies. Same thing. I clicked on my log-in and THEN the full dual setup came online. We both breathed a sigh of relief.

                 

                Glad that you are up and running.
