Adding 2nd Monitor for Gauges

Recommended Posts

Hi All,,

In the past, I've run my FSX  & now P3D environments with a single 24 1080p monitor,,, single monitor, single GPU.  But now, I'm considering adding an older 20" monitor, strictly to handle PFD/MFD use, more if the system can handle it. Just find that hitting Shift-1, or Shift-2 and back, is getting a bit old, especially when I see the 20" sitting quietly on a shelf, begging to be used.

I've searched around the forums, as best I can, but looking for a guide or tutorial that might best explain how to go about it. Yes, I add the 2nd monitor to my single GPU, with the result that Windows 7 now sees both monitors. But the steps as to what to change in FSX/P3D is where it gets a bit sketchy.

Is anyone aware of guides/info that can help me along with this?

Thanks for your help.

Mike

You should be able to undock a popup window and drag it onto the second monitor with your mouse..

Right click on the top of the window and select undock..
