"Didn't properly support profiles for 3 monitors."

April 26, 2015

 |  Version: Actual Multiple Monitors 8.0.3


Added a task bar and supports multiple wallpapers.


Switching profiles between 3 monitors didn't actually work.
Requires an installation and kind of eats up more of my RAM than I would want.
$25 is definitely not worth it.


I ended up just getting a free program called MonitorSwitcher which is really light and does the job easily.

"Good multi monitor software and improving"

October 16, 2014  |  By John vb

 |  Version: Actual Multiple Monitors 8.0.3


Makes easier to work in a multi-monitor environment.
Compatible with Windows 8 or 8.1
It is updated frequently. Last version is 8.2.
It is packed with functions, I use every day the hotkeys to move the mouse quickly between monitors. I configured the task bar to show the same on every window (including start menu). By default the mouse movement stops a little while when you reach the edge of the monitor to prevent it to go to the next monitor too easily.
It is possible to disable load at startup through the configuration window (accessible through a different icon). This way you can load the application only if you need it. For example when you connect the laptop to the monitors in the office. You can stop or unload Multiple Monitors when you leave without shutting down the laptop avoiding to consume system resources.


The configuration window has so many functions and customizing capabilities for all people needs that it is difficult to find at the beginning what you need. I would like some sort of simplified menu or wizard with the most common functions organized in categories and everything else grouped in these categories.
Issues I found with the "Modern" Windows 8 UI: When using the task switcher (alt + tab) the mail window from modern UI stills gets duplicated. When moving the mouse to the main screen using the hot key combination, it stills change to desktop when viewing an application in the Modern UI mode (for example the new IE)


This software is worth to have if you work with multiple monitors, especially if it is three or more where it is very cumbersome to move between the entire work space with the limited tools provided by Windows.
