Windows display settings

The Windows display settings dialog allows you to view all the monitors installed on your system, and allows you to control the settings of each monitor.  You can use this screen to change the resolution (number of pixels) that are displayed on your screens. 

If you have multiple graphics cards installed (or have a notebook with an external monitor port) then you can use this to extend your Windows desktop onto multiple monitors.  If you extend your desktop on multiple monitors, you will be able to create presentations that span multiple screens, or play different presentations on each screen.

You can use the Windows display settings to view or change Windows display settings such as changing the number of pixels displayed on screen.  For example, your computer may have a resolution of 1280x1024 pixels but you may be using a projector for that have a native resolution of 1024x768 pixels.  If you were designing a PowerPoint presentation for display on this projector, then by changing your computer's resolution to 1024x768 pixels using Windows display settings you would get a perfect quality presentation as you are matching the computer's pixels to the projector's.  In the above picture, you would need to use the Resolutions slighter bar to move along the Low to High bar until you find the resolution you were looking for.  It depends on the monitor to what resolutions are supported.

Please note that Repeat Signage requires that all monitors use 32-bit colour.  In the 'Colors:' drop down box on the picture above, you can see that this is set to Highest (32 bit).
