When a monitor just isn't big enough, try Microsoft's SurroundWeb

Quote:
Many office workers have found that working with more than one monitor makes them more productive. Microsoft’s SurroundWeb research prototype takes that to an extreme—a whole room.

In a recently published research paper, Microsoft Research suggests that one or multiple projectors could beam maps, videos, games, or other images onto the various flat surfaces in a room. The software could also detect actual screens—such as TVs or phones—that could be used to interact with the content. If this sounds familiar, it is: Microsoft unveiled a similar Illumiroom concept last year.

How do I access my main monitor if broken in a multi-monitor setup?
I have a setup with 6 monitors. Today my main monitor broke and I couldn't find a way to shut the PC down since I couldn't access the main desktop to get to the Start menu. Is there a way to change which monitor is the main monitor without having access to the current main monitor?
