when I did that, my monitors essentially flipped. Monitor one is now my secondary monitor, and that's the one that I'm currently working on right here, while monitor two has become the primary monitor. Now to make this actually work, I would need to physically move these two monitors. This is actually really confusing me because my monitors have now been flipped. So let's go ahead and switch this back.Let's make monitor one my main display. And now let's click and drag monitor one back over to the left of monitor two, right about there, hit apply, and everything is working the way it's supposed to. On Windows 7 and Windows 8, this is the primary tool that you'll use to adjust your display settings.While on Windows 10, you will use the Settings app. Summary 10:02-10:12 That's it for this demonstration. In this demo, we talked about how to configure display settings. We first looked at how to configure display settings on Windows 10 using the Settings app, and then we looked at how to configure display settings in Control Panel. Configuring Advanced Display Settings in Windows 0:00-0:41 In this demonstration, we're going to take a look at several settings that you can use to optimize the performance of your video component in a PC system. Now most of these display settings are accessed via control panel. So I'll come down here to the Windows icon, right click and then select Control Panel. And then under appearance and personalization, we want to click adjust screen resolution. When we do, we see some basic but configuration parameters we can use to customize our video display, such as the resolution, the orientation of the display, whether landscape or portrait. However, notice over here that there's another link called advanced settings, and this is what we want to focus on in this demonstration. Optimize Adapter Settings 0:42-2:41 I'm going to click advanced settings and when I do, the first tab I see is the adapter tab, and this tab displays a lot of very useful information about the video adapter that's installed in the system. First of all, up here it tells us what type of video adapter is installed in this system. This system has an Nvidia GeForce GT 610 installed. If I come over here to properties and click it, I see the properties of this device in device manager. In fact, we can come over here to the driver tab where we can view driver details, update the driver. If we need to, we can disable the device or even uninstall the driver completely. Now please be aware that sometimes, the information you see under adapter type is not entirely accurate. Basically, the value you see displayed here under adapter type is based on the driver that's been loaded for the video hardware. Here's what happens on occasion. You install a new Windows system. When you do, Windows doesn't recognize the video hardware that you have installed in the system. When this happens, in order to just get something on the screen, Windows will load, by default, a basic Microsoft display video driver.It's not a very good driver, but it works across a wide range of different hardware devices. And if that happens, instead of seeing the

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
