Up to eight monitors can be configured.
Defining multiple monitors
In Device configuration > Display, click Resolution/Layout to open the dialog of the same name.
The field Number of monitors specifies one monitor by default. In the field below, this monitor is represented by a blue monitor icon with the number 1. By default, the first monitor is defined as the primary monitor (see option in the lower section).
For a different setting, see the instructions below.
In the Number of monitors list, select how many monitors you want to connect to the devices.
Once you have defined more than one monitor, their possible positions (horizontal and vertical) are shown as gray monitor icons.
Double-click the gray monitor icon that shows the position of the second monitor.
The selected monitor icon is shown in blue with the number 2.
Alternatively, right-click a monitor position to assign a monitor to it.
If you have specified more than two monitors, double-click the desired gray monitor icons, one after the other.
Each of the defined monitors is shown as a blue monitor icon with its number.
To automatically adjust the layout after one of the monitors is removed, select the option Automatic layout adjustment.1
If the option is not active, the current layout is retained regardless of the actual situation.
A four-monitor configuration is supported on the following devices: Dell Z50QQ, Hewlett-Packard t620 Plus and Hewlett-Packard t730.
A five-monitor configuration is supported on the following devices: Fujitsu FUTRO S940 and Fujitsu FUTRO S9010.
Defining positions of all monitors freely
To define the position of the first monitor, use a new layout.
1. In the Resolution/Layout dialog, in the Number of monitors list, select how many monitors you want to connect to the devices.
The first monitor is shown as a blue monitor icon. For each additional monitor, their possible positions (horizontal and vertical) are shown as gray monitor icons.
2. Click New layout.
For the number of monitors selected, all possible positions are shown as gray monitor icons:
3. Double-click the desired monitor position for the first monitor. Then, double-click the desired monitor positions of the remaining monitors.
Cloning monitors (Clone mode)
If you have specified more than one monitor, by default the system configures the monitors as extended desktops (one continuous desktop over all monitors). Alternatively, for individual monitors, after having defined them, you can activate the Clone mode (same display on multiple monitors):
To deactivate the Clone mode, use the New Layout feature (see above).
