    Question How can I extend my single desktop display across three monitors

    I would like to extend my single desktop display across three monitors. I use two Display link EVGA UA+ external video adapters. I have tried downloading stretched desktop displays from the internet but I can only get the display to repeat on each monitor. I use Windows 7 Home Edition. Is there a way to do this?

    DG,

    You may need a driver from the external display adapter manufacturer if this does not work.

    1. Right-Click on empty part of desktop.
    2. Click Screen Resolution.
    3. Set Multiple displays: to Extend these displays as shown below.

    I found even the free version of Display Fusion to be useful for configuring multiple monitor display on Windows 7, and particularly moving program windows between monitors.
