IN THIS APPENDIX, YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO

Windows 8.1 provides better support for dual or multiple-monitor setups than any previous version. For example, on a dual-monitor setup, you can display the Start screen on the main monitor and the desktop on the second. You can also display the desktop on both monitors, and unlike Windows 7, you can have the taskbar visible on both, provided your displays and video drivers support this.

In this appendix, you’ll learn in detail how to use Windows 8.1 with a dual-monitor setup and how to customize how each display is used.
