GEM IN THE ROUGH: Multiple Monitors—Two Worlds
If you’re lucky enough to have a second monitor connected to
your PC, you might say to yourself: “Hey, self! Think how cool this
could be! I could have TileWorld on one screen, and a Windows
desktop app on the other! Best of both worlds!”
You’re absolutely right.
Connect your second monitor to your computer’s video output
jack, whatever it may be (HDMI cable or VGA cable, maybe).
When everything’s powered up, both screens show TileWorld. But
that’s about to change.
Open the Charms bar. Choose Devices, and then “Second screen.”
Now you see icons representing the various ways Windows can handle
the second screen: “PC screen only” (meaning turn off the second
monitor), “Duplicate” (mirror the same image on both screens),
“Extend” (use the second monitor as an extension of the main one’s
area), and “Second screen only” (turn off the main screen).
What you want is Extend. The screens go black for a moment,
and then boom: The second monitor now shows the desktop. Using the
Desktop tile, you can flip the main screen back and forth between
TileWorld (or a TileWorld app) and the desktop.
If you like, you can adjust resolution or swap the screen
images using the desktop Control Panel, as described on File Explorer.
