Second 8"monitor

Recommended Posts

I have second 8"monitor for some addons to make my flying more enjoyable. The problem is if I fly in FSX "Full window screen mode", PC mouse does not function I cannot click on any buttons in secondary 8" monitor.I posted this question in MFSX post, I didn't get any advise to this problem. How can I make MFSX release mouse function in second monitor for separate addons. Like Moving maps,FSWidgets,etc.?Thanks,

Thanks for your reply.'"You can only undock and move panels to another monitor in Windowed mode...."If I understood correctly, it is not possible to click any buttons in second monitor if FSXin "Full window Mode" and no way MFSX settings can be change. Is it correct?

Yes it is possible in FSX. I have done that a lot of times in full screen and it works just fine. The buttons are also clickable.

Sorry, I think I understood your question wrong. It is NOT possible to view other APPLICATIONS on the second monitor when in full screen mode, but it is possible to move any panel/gauges to the second monitor when in full screen mode. Hope this helps.

Ron,Thanks for your input.My understanding of "Full Screen Mode" is same as "Full window Mode"Windowed mode is screen with frame around." It is NOT possible to view other APPLICATIONS on the second monitor when in full screen mode"Here I am confused. I have a "other application" as FSCaptain FCOM. It is not part of airplane software. I installed the FCOM and FCOM program appears in airplane panel cfg file, it works perfect in "Full Screen Mode".
