Set Up Multiple Displays (Windows XP)

nView display modes enable you to view your desktop in one of several multi-display modes to make the best use of the displays (monitors) that are connected to your computer.

  • In Single mode, your desktop is displayed on a single monitor

  • In Clone mode, your desktop is duplicated on each display.

  • In Horizontal Span and Vertical Span modes, the desktop is stretched across the displays.
