Hi, I have been a single 19" LCD (not wide screen) monitor person for some time, and I just ordered a 22" wide screen pivot-able for a second monitor. Planning on using it vertical for Word & Outlook.
It has occurred to me that there may be a problem setting this second monitor up as far as desktop resolution.
My video card is a Sapphire 9600 with dual DVI so connections aren't the issue.
So I am wondering what everyone uses to set resolution on disparate monitor sizes. I found UltraMon 2.7.1, but it had a warning about black taskbars in Windowblinds. Since I use object Desktop this would be an issue.
Although I mentioned that I would be using the new monitor in the vertical position, I didn't see any comments on rotation. The Samsung Synchmaster came with magic rotation, but not any acceptable resolutions. Ror example if I use 1024x768 for default 19" monitor. There is nothing similar for the other rotated 19" widescreen and everything is distorted. I tried Ultamon, both beta and regular. With the beta whenever I used the minimize button the window expanded to both monitors and then on the second minimize it minimized?? Trial period ran out and I did not purchase, so when I chose close all my desktop icons and Fences disappeared. So disgusted I haven't been back since saturday. I need to uninstall UM and reboot I guess.
