I hope this is the right place to post. I attached an image of my current monitors. They get the job done, but are very uneven, as you can see.


What I would really like is to have one ultra-wide monitor, but still be able to maximize windows and games like I do with my current monitors.

For example, I usually have a game open on the left monitor, in either windowed or border-less full-screen mode, and then either a video, music player or guide for said game, on the right monitor.


I should mention that I have already looked at having two monitors of the same make and model. While it is infinitely better, there's still the black frame in the middle. I really want to avoid that.


The problem here is obviously how I'm going to have a game in "full-screen" on only the left side of the ultra-wide monitor. Windowed mode would work fine, of course.


I found these videos showing some screen splitting software and I was wondering if any of you have experience with this sort of thing.

I'm aware that WinSplit Revolution has been discontinued, but I think it can still be downloaded somewhere.


So, do you guys know if it is possible to confine a border-less full-screen game to one-half of an ultra-wide monitor? Or are there any other solutions you're just itching to lay on me?


Thanking you in advance.
