Really Cool Feature in Windows 7 RC (Multi-Monitor Support)

Updated: at 02:12 PM

I’ve finally moved my Lenovo W500 over to Windows 7 RC.  What motivated me was my wireless networking was getting really really unstable.  Sometimes it would connect, other times it would not, and it never seemed to want to work at starbucks anymore.

So, here I am, and so far, vary happy.  I did try the Windows 7 beta and had some weirdness with Visual Studio 2008, but so far, everything has been perfect.  I do know the Microsoft folks have advertised that it contains better multi-monitor support.  I don’t know exactly what that means, but I have two monitors running off my Lenovo.  One is 2560x1600 and the other is 1600x1200.  One hassle I always had was moving a windows that was too big for the small monitor.  Now, I find that when I drag from the bigger to smaller, if the app is to big, it automatically get’s resized!  Nice Job MS!

Also, the appearance display is nicer. There is more granularity in letting you line up the monitors.  That is, my smaller one is centered next to the bigger one and I can align them exactly now as the screen show shows.


That’s it for now.  See you.
