Merge 2 of 3 monitors

Avatar from
3 discussion posts
So I use NICE DCV to work on a remote desktop. I have three identical monitors arranged horizontally at 1920x1080 each. I would like to be able to have DCV in full screen across 2 of the 3 monitors, leaving the third for web browser, email, etc. NICE DCV only allows for full screen on a single monitor or across all monitors.

Is it possible to virtually merge monitors 2 and 3 into one "single" monitor 3840x1080?

Alternatively, is it possible to capture the full screen button in DCV as a trigger? I'm new to DisplayFusion, but it seems possible when maximizing, but I don't see how to do it with a full screen trigger.

Thanks for your help,

Thanks for checking out DisplayFusion! Unfortunately DisplayFusion can't merge the monitors, no. If your video card supports NVIDIA Surround or AMD Eyefinity you could use those features to combine the monitors. Something like SoftTH may also work, though I've never tried it.

Unfortunately DisplayFusion can't trigger on the full screen event either, sorry :(

Ok bummer. I have an intel graphics card so that won't work for me.

Thanks for your help.

So short of a better solution, here is the hacky way that I was able to kinda get DCV 2017 working in full screen across 2 of my 3 monitors.

1) Open DCV connection.
2) In settings > Display Resolution, set to Adapt automatically
3) Put the viewer in Full Screen mode across All monitors
4) Inside of the Linux client, open the display settings
a. It should show 3 virtual monitors
5) Click on one of the side monitors and uncheck “Use this display” (or other similar option)
6) Click to keep changes.
7) While still in full screen mode, set the display resolution to the current resolution (3810x1080 for me). This turns off auto adaption of screen resolution.
8) Exit full screen mode
9) Go back into full screen mode on a single monitor
10) Open a second DCV session of the same connection
11) Set it to full screen on a single monitor on the other monitor.
12) There will be scroll bars on the bottom of the two viewers, scroll one all the way to the right and one all the way to the left.
13) And you are done. You can kind of drag things between the two windows now.

If someone has a better solution, I'd like to hear it.
