Many PC users buy a second monitor to enjoy playing on dual monitors. However, they are faced with several issues that can only be solved with third-party software. What can Actual Multiple Monitors offer to dual monitor gamers?
If you are playing using only one monitor and try to perform any action on the other, the game will be minimized. Each time you turn to the other monitor, any full-screen application will minimized.
To prevent game minimization, use the Ignore Deactivation feature. Run the game and press the hotkey combination Ctrl-Alt-Shift-I. Now, you can do anything on the unused monitor and the game will stay in full-screen.
If you prefer to play in the windowed mode, the mouse pointer may leave the game borders at the most inappropriate moment. Thus, the game window loses focus and you cannot manage the game. This is fraught with losing resources or a character death, for example.
To prevent the leaving game’s borders with the mouse pointer, use the Lock the Mouse feature. When playing the game, press the Ctrl-Alt-Shift-L hotkey. Now, your mouse pointer cannot leave the area of the game window. To cancel the Lock Mouse effect, use the hotkey again.
If you will play on multiple monitors, but options of the game do not allow you to set the desired resolution, use the additional title button, called Maximize to Desktop. This feature allows you to span the window to dual monitors or more.
Switch to the windowed mode and click to the Maximize to Desktop title button. Use this button again to cancel effect.
If you are using dual monitors or more, then the navigation by the mouse pointer is impeded by the large area and locked borders of the desktop.
To unlock borders and loop the desktop, use the Wrap the Desktop feature. Open the Actual Multiple Monitors configuration window and follow to the Mouse -> Multiple Monitors to check the Wrap the Desktop box.
Note: You can set desired hotkey combinations for all these features.
