Many people like to work on multiple monitors at the same time, whether they are tech geeks or just people who are trying to be more productive.
Additional monitors allow you to expand your desktop, adding more screen space and visibility for your open programs. Windows makes it very easy to set up additional monitors, and MagicStick One has all the necessary ports to enable this feature for you.
Setting-up Dual Display
MagicStick can be connected to multiple display devices at one time.
You can connect more than one displays using either HDMI 2.0 port or USB 3.1 with Type-C docking station or both. You can connect any HDMI display by using HDMI 2.0 port and an HDMI splitter (Male-to-female) and connect several display devices at the same time.
Alternately, you can enable multiple displays by connecting USB 3.1 to docking station at one end and at other end using HDMI port of the device with HDMI display.
When you connect an additional screen to your MagicStick One, Windows will automatically detect it and display your computer’s desktop.
You can then choose how you want your desktop to appear as per your preference. You can later customize the display settings such as Display Style, Screen Resolution and Color Depth.
You can easily move Windows apps to another monitor by grabbing it along the top edge and dragging it from one monitor to another.
You can also span a single panoramic picture across multiple monitors.
Setting up Multiple Monitors
After you connect the monitors to your MagicStick, you can select the Display Style that best suits your needs. To quickly choose how you want to use your display on Windows, press ‘Windows + P’ on your keyboard. A sidebar will appear and you’ll be able to quickly choose a new display mode. You can choose from one of the following four options on how the desktop is displayed:
PC Screen Only: The second monitor is ignored and only the primary monitor is used.
Duplicate: The second monitor mirrors the primary monitor.
Extend: The desktop of your PC is extended across the two monitors and allows you to have a desktop that spans across both monitors.
Second Screen Only: The primary monitor will be disabled and only the secondary monitor will be used
