Understanding (1) Portrait & (2) Landscape Monitor setup better..

Hi -- I have a Portrait mode monitor that is 1080 x 1920 as well as 2 other landscape monitors with the resolution as 1920 x 1080. I've attached a screenshot from Windows settings to better understand the setup... I have a few questions:

• I have a weird issue when dragging a window from the portrait setup to the landscape, where when inside the portrait display it's almost magnified -- is there a way to tweak or fix this? Alongside this issue the window seems "offset" when entering the other monitor if dragged over.

• I would like to use the wallpaper feature to change wallpapers as a whole across all 3 monitors -- as if it was one big image, is there a decent way to accomplish this? I do have Photoshop but I was struggling since the portrait monitor is a bit offset from the task bar reference because I sit a bit lower at my desk than the monitors. Is there maybe a template for wallpapers like this to use in PSD or a way I can use a PSD to understand the offset from the portrait taskbar to the landscape so it matches correctly and looks fluid?

• Is there a way to reassign my landscape monitor from being "#1" I'm not sure how it became this, but it can be annoying on bootup seeing the windows logo, lol. I was hoping this wasn't due to which cable was being used, etc.

Sorry if these question may seem "noobish" but I've been really busy and these just came to mind in the past and I finnally was able to sit down and get my thoughts together on my existing setup issues.

Thanks again!!

For the first issue, could you attach a copy of your DisplayFusion troubleshooting info? Here are the steps:

  • Open the Settings > Troubleshooting tab
  • Click the "Export Info to File" button
  • Reply with the file attached

For the second thing, if you choose the "Span Image Across All Monitors" mode in the DisplayFusion wallpaper configuration window, you can choose an image to span the monitors. Just make sure it has a high enough vertical resolution so that it doesn't get stretched too much.

For the last thing, unfortunately it is due to which ports are used on the video card. To change the monitor ID number you'd need to swap the cables around.

Thanks! I don't see anything out of the ordinary in the troubleshooting info. Could you send me a screenshot of what the window looks like when this happens?

If it's not showing in a screenshot, it almost sounds like a video card or driver issue. If you exit DisplayFusion and drag a window over, does that still happen?
