A better way to use multiple monitors!

DisplayLink have partnered with Actual Tools to bring you the best multiple monitor software on the market. Actual Multiple Monitors is a software utility offering the unique set of productivity tools aimed to enhance the usability of Windows® user interface when working with multi-monitor configurations.

Actual Multiple Monitors emulates the original Windows® Taskbar on each secondary display as well. With this you can easily control the open windows (activate/minimize them, switch between them):

Multimon taskbar

Alt-Tab Task Switcher window on each monitor

The Multi-monitor Task Switcher extension clones the original Windows® Task Switcher window on each secondary display so that you don't need to distract from your current attention focus:

New window controls

Dragging windows with the mouse to allocate them within the desktop extended onto several monitors is tedious. With the help of Move to Monitor window action you can quickly place a particular window onto certain monitor.

In addition to quick allocation of windows between monitors, there are also the following features:

  • Maximize to Desktop - click the right mouse button on window's regular Maximize title button to expand that window to all visible screen space. Right-click the Maximize button again to restore window's size back.
  • Maximize Horizontally/Vertically - click the right mouse button on window's regular Maximize title button with the Shift/Ctrl key pressed to make window's width/height equal to its monitor's width/height. Right-click the Maximize title button again with the modifier key pressed to restore window's size back.
  • Stretch to Border - click the right mouse button anywhere on window's sizeable border (if the window has it) to stretch that window towards the corresponding edge/corner of window's host monitor. Right-click the clicked border part again to restore window's size back.
  • Snap to Border - click the right mouse button anywhere on window's sizeable border (if the window has it) with the <Ctrl> key pressed to snap that window to the corresponding edge/corner of window's host monitor.
