:thumbsup: Hello,


I have a dual monitor setup for my PC. Currently on Vista64 bit. I have the additional monitor setup as an extended desktop. I want to have a screen savor be applied to both screens instead of just the main screen.

Does anyone have a solution to this?

Yes, you can. I found this answer on the Vistax64 Forums using Google. You can use a very useful program called Ultramon which is a tweak tool for using dual monitor setups. It will allow you to use a different (or the same) screen saver on each monitor. It has a full featured trial period in which you can try all the neat features of the program before registering.

THanks SC,

Yea I tried Ultramon and it did it, but not for my screen saver. I have a matrix screen saver that doesnt seem to get the dual effect. You know in the options for dual screen saver where it has a preview button? Well the side that the SS would normally be on doesnt have it checked off and it works on that monitor, but for the second monitor the SS is just black and I think its because of the preview box being checked off on that one.

Any ideas about that?
