i installed matrox and ran the app but it didnt do anything. i am guessing it is for specific hardware?

anyways, I am looking for something like the ati hydragrid or the old nview where i can set up quadrants on each monitor so when i maximize a screen, it doesnt do the whole 5760x1080.

i found one app that lets me have 1 grid but i need multiple (at least 3).

and thanks for the welcome!
