Hello friends! I am here with a handy and useful setup guide of multiple displays on a single system. With the help of this guide you can setup two or mor displays on a single system running windows 7. []() As I stated above, this guide is for windows 7. So the prerequisites for this guide are:
  1. System running Windows 7.
  2. There must atleast 2 VGA ports.

For this you guys can use your laptops, one display is its own display and the another diaplay can be attached to the VGA port on laptop.

To start using multi-display system, follow the following steps:

1. Turn on both the displays. 2. Connect both the displays to the system. 3. Right click on the desktop and I then click on “Screen resolution”. 4. Now you can see both screens as 1|2 on the upper part.
