with plugable usb for multiple monitors. Can you have matrix of 4 monitors and display what is on the computer screen so it is blown up on the 4 monitors? So computer screen is 4 times larger on the 2x2 matrix monitors.
Thanks for your question. We’re happy to help.
The adapters will provide the functionality you’re seeking, but you will have to do a little window management. Let me try to explain a little more.
If you are working in Windows and extending the desktop to each new display you add via a Plugable USB adapter, you really have one big desktop across all these monitors. You can stretch stretch a window so that it fills the desktop across all the monitors, but without a third-party utility, you’ll have to do this window management manually by dragging and dropping the borders of the window.
DisplayLink–the maker of the chipset within our graphics adapters–advertises a third-party utility called Actual Multiple Monitors that simplifies the process of maximizing a window to the entire extended desktop (among other things). You can find the utility here: http://displaylink.com/support/tools…. The cost is $39.95, but it has a 30-day trial period. We have no affiliation with the maker of this software, and there are other packages out there that do the same thing. But this is the package that DisplayLink promotes on its site.
I hope I have answered your question, but please let me know if you need additional information.
How many plugable adapters will I need in this instance?
how many adapters are necessary in this instance?
Every monitor needs its own adapter. You can find a list of all Plugable graphics adapters at http://plugable.com/products. The higher-numbered models support higher resolutions (a comparison of the four main models is available at http://plugable.com/products/graphics…). If you need selection advice, please let us know.
