Windows 7: Dual display on win 7 resolution

Dual display on win 7 resolution

Hello!

I have a pc connected to a regular monitor and to a plasma tv, I would like to have the same setup on win7 as I have on winxp meanning that when I set my desktop resolution to 1920x1080 (highest res. for the TV) my monitor (the display is cloned) displays it's own max resolution (1680x1050) only you can move the mouse and 'move the screen' a bit when you touch the edges as there is more desktop space then the monitor can see in one picture.

To my dismay win7 won't allow me to set 1920x1080 but will go as much as my monitor can go (if I turn of the monitor then it will) so is there any way to make it work like on xp, I hate it when features like this get removed and the os is 10 years more advanced, at least give us an option

Currently I believe the latest ATI display drivers allow for this, or will in the update next month.

No not really. Clone mode has to set with the same resolution. It's a Win7 WDDM driver model limitation. Only XP could do that pan & scan type method.

Although, I did hear that the third party software Ultramon could do what you mant.

ULTRAMON
• Mirroring
Mirror the primary monitor on one or more secondary monitors, for example when doing a presentation. Or mirror only a single application on a secondary monitor. A unique feature is support for different resolutions, the source monitor can run at a higher resolution than the mirror monitor.
