Hey all;
New here, and I apologize if this is not the right spot for this post.

My uses for my computer vary quite widely from gaming, to programming, to DAW work.
My DAW definitely does not play well with nVidia Surround, and so I was wondering if perchance anyone knows of either:

A) Some way of setting up profiles (One for surround spanning, one for activate all displays)


B) Some way to automatically enable surround when the system detects a game being launched

Need details about my system?

Both BenQ monitors are connected via HDMI, ASUS monitor connected via dual-link DVI.

PS --> I've tried using the keyboard shortcuts that nVidia's drivers provide, but they didn't seem to do anything at all.

Any other questions, ask away...
oh... and thanks in advance!

would you care to try that and report back to me if you had any problem? I didn't tested it much so I expect lot of bugs, so, yeah :)

May I ask, have you tried 'Windows Key' + 'P' ?
Choose "Extend" for working (independent/non surround) mode. Choose "Second Screen Only" for gaming (span/surround) mode.

Hello. New member here.

I use Actual Multiple Monitors http://www.actualtools.com/multiplemonitors that is a part of the Actual Windows Manager suite. You can get it alone or with the suite.

You can create and swap between multiple profiles and other usefull things.

I currently have 4 profiles and more will be added.

I only have one issue at the moment and that is, I can't get the one screen profile to work proberly. It is probably me doing something wrong, but "Windows key" P / Only pc does the trick, so i haven't been trying to solve it.

I bought the Windows Manager and i consider it money well spent.

Hope it helps
