dual monitor

By neal1lb ·
I know that win98 supports dual monitors.
I would like to know if after setting this
up can you display one document on one screen
and another document on the other screen.
Or is it just capable of streching the
screen across both monitors
thanks

You can extend the desktop across two monitors,you can drag files and open windows anywhere on both screens.So the answer would have to be No,you have only one cpu and the application you are viewing would be open only on one machine.

I must disagree with soulrider. I am currently viewing two MS Word documents. One on the left monitor and one on the right.

The number CPUs installed has nothing to do with your display via the dual monitor setup - except perhaps a dual CPU machine would display it faster.

The answer is YES - this is the whole point of having dual monitors. Check it out - it is very worth while.

When you are using dual monitors in Windows 98, you may open different applications in each monitor independently. In other words, you can have a solitaire game in one monitor and a word document in the other monitor.
You can have each monitor usea different resolution from the other. You can stretch one application across both screens if you wish.
You can use up to nine (9) monitors at the same time, each running a different program or you can stretch one app across all nine.
One thing you cannot do: You cannot drag a window that is full sized into another monitor. You must reduce the size of the window before you drag it to the other monitor. Good luck.
