Re: Tangent *OT*

In Response To: Re: Tangent *OT* (Phoenix_9286)

: I'm ignorant about Windows 8. Is there no way to change that? Because my
: first gut reaction was to irritatedly start scrounging preferences to turn
: that nonsense off, and failing that, find a multi monitor utility that
: knows what it's doing.

: There was also the pressing feeling to dump the three Halo images and find
: something to span all three displays.

: Good on you if that's your workflow of choice, but I personally can't stand
: it. If I'm presented with multiple displays, taskbars need to reflect only
: what's running on each display, and the background needs to be unified to
: reflect the fact that, "hey, this is all one desktop".

If I had a single image at a wide resolution I could set it to span all displays, I simply chose not to in this case. I think it looks dumb like that. The image gets broken up.

Since my live wallpaper album has over 100 images in it, I like this setup because it allows me to mix things up. The combos are pretty neat in my opinion. This is like having three different posters or picture frames up at a time.

The taskbar thing can be changed too. However, I am always bouncing between several different apps at once and sometimes use all three bars. The center display is the primary display, so whenever I press the windows key that is where the metro interface pulls up- the other two displays stay in desktop mode which is quite useful for say, RDP or VMware where I don't want those apps to be minimized as I bounce around on my local machine.
