Maximise a program across two screens

Hi. Just purchased DF and I can't get something to work.

I have a program that I'd like to maximise across two screens. Not sure if maximise is available across two screens, whether using Windows settings or DF?

My screens are as follows....

Primary - Portrait (Flipped) 22" set at 1080 x 1920
Secondary - Landscape 10" set at 1080 x 864

The secondary screen is placed centrally, directly above the primary.

Hi Keith,

Is our "Span Windows Across all Monitors" function what you're looking for?

Thanks!

Hi Owen. Thanks for the reply and suggestion.

I tried that but it doesn't work. When I click (CTRL + Win + '), it minimises the program, showing just the top menu bar on the primary screen.

I'm surprised that Windows 10 itself doesn't maximise the program over both screens.

On my main PC (Win 11), if I press Shift while clicking the program's maximise button on the top menu, it maximises across both of my two screens. Even though the screens are different sizes and resolutions, it maximises to the smallest (lowest resolution) screen and the rest of the program is shown on the largest (highest resolution) screen but at slightly smaller. Which is correct, due to the different resolutions.

On the PC in question, I have checked that the width resolutions are the same (1024). Plus, I can stretch the program manually to fit both screens but I can't do that every time I use the program.

So I'm puzzled as to why it doesn't work. I must be doing something wrong, or it's a graphics card limitation. It's an on-board Intel graphics card.

Strange, is it only this specific program that is having troubles with that function? Is it a free app I can test out on my end?

Thanks!

Hi Owen,

Apologies for the delay in replying...I was away for the weekend.

I'm going to stick with just the 22" touchscreen display.

Thanks for the help though.

Regards,

Keith
