Placing Your Monitors

When setting up multiple monitors, Windows ME will assume that you have them side by side with monitor 1 on the left and 2 to its right.

But if you have stacked them, then you will need to tell Windows.

To do this,

  • Right-click the desktop and choose the Settings tab.

  • Click and drag one monitor and move it to where it will be actually placed in relation to the other monitor(s).

  • Now, to double-check your work, click on each monitor with the left mouse button and hold it down.

  • The corresponding monitor should display its number across the screen.

  • Now, click Apply.
  • This tells Windows ME where one monitor ends and the next begins so that you can have one huge desktop.
