"Good multi monitor software and improving"

October 16, 2014  |  By John vb

 |  Version: Actual Multiple Monitors 8.0.3

Pros

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.

Cons

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)

Summary

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.

"Upgrades you past your license then re-enables nagware"

August 21, 2013  |  By Zwii

 |  Version: Actual Multiple Monitors 5.1.1

Pros

It works when it doesn't nag you.

Cons

Somehow the program updated me beyond the version I presumably paid for and got a license for, prompting the program to go BACK into nagware/trial mode, even after I had paid for it! This happened 4 months after I paid for it. Then when I try to downgrade, there's no link for the version my license is supposedly for. Clearly, they want you to forget you paid and upgrade.

Summary

Scammy.

"Works well for me"

April 18, 2013  |  By evstar_deluxe

 |  Version: Actual Multiple Monitors 5.1.1

Pros

Allows me to disconnect my laptop from my second monitor without any issue.

Cons

Setup & Interface isn't intuitive for customising.

Summary

A lot better than the other multi-monitor programs I have used, as they would bug out when I removed the second monitor from my laptop.
