Possible to Duplicate one Monitor to a second one with different resolutions?

Hi!

I am having a 3-monitor setup right now.

Monitor 1 (ultra-widescreen / 3440x1440) - main monitor
Monitor 2 (ultra-widescreen / 3440x1440)
Monitor 3 (a smaller touch screen monitor / 1920x1080)

I would like to duplicate monitor 1 onto the smaller monitor 3.

It does work, but the difference in resolutions makes my main monitor switch to 1920x1080 which looks a litte rediculous :D
(Seems like when duplicating, the smaller resolution is chosen for both screens)

Is there an option to duplicate one screen to another with different resolutions?

thank you for your answers :)

Unfortunately it's not possible to clone monitors at different resolutions.

Depending on what you're showing on the main monitor, you could try the "Mirror Monitor" function (set a key combination on it on the Settings > Functions tab). It will let you mirror the output of a monitor to a window that you can then resize to fit onto the smaller monitor.

Thanks!

I'm in a similar boat and looking for a solution right now.
    Main Display - 4K UHD Projector at 2880x2160 @60hz
    Second Display - Touchscreen Monitor at 1366x768 @60hz
Using the 'Mirror Monitor' function, would I be able to play a fullscreen game from the projector, then view the game and use the touchscreen for in-game options on the smaller monitor?
Appreciate any and all help!

UPDATE: I found out that this is not possible. Thanks!

Absolutely possible! Instead of mirroring the actual display, treat it more like a WINDOW. If you do that, you don't have to force the mirrored display to change resolution.

I'd love to see DisplayFusion adopt every single feature that ActualTools has so I don't have to keep both running. I absolutely love DisplayFusion and how much it's grown over the years. This, and AWM, are the first 2 pieces of software any of my PC's get. Wish it was just DF though. Still a few things that AWM does better, or at all.

For what it's worth, I'm the reason IgnoreDeactivation came to DisplayFusion, pointing it out years ago. Was told then, it "wasn't possible", and showed what ActualTools was doing. Several months later, BAM, DF had IgnoreDeactivation!

You can do eet!!!!

Look at Elgato Stream Deck mobile software. It will allow you to set hotkeys for buttons on the touchscreen.
