    Dual-monitors and Word (2002)

    We appear to be having issues with Word opening on our systems using dual-monitors. It seems that (especially if the dual-monitors are attached before Office XP is installed) each time Word is opened another window of Word also opens. The second window is blank except for the Word logo like on the title bar (no toolbars, menus, or document).

    Has anyone had this issue? Does anyone have any ideas on how to get rid of the second Word window?

    I've got dual monitors and have had no problems whatsoever, they act as one large desktop. Perhaps your video card is the problem. Could your system be trying to open Word in BOTH the monitors (as if each was a normal single monitor)?

    It is probably true that the video card is the cause of the issue. Most people with the dual monitors are using them as separate areas to display different software in each. We usually do not span across both monitors.

    Thanks for the information. I will have my hardware guys look into the issue.
