How to Move a Game Between Multiple Monitors Without Losing It?

You are currently viewing How to Move a Game Between Multiple Monitors Without Losing It?

Recently, I was tasked with moving a game from one monitor to another without losing its appearance. This is not an easy feat; it requires careful planning!

I had just finished organizing my workspace when the issue arose in earnest – after all, why should this be any different from all the other times I’ve arranged things? Why not just get straight to business and get everything situated where it should be?

Actually, no.

With casual deliberation, I set about mapping out my ideal setup and then began assembling components for each of the available displays available. My first step was to locate the particular application that would serve as a hub – which turned out to be none other than Steam itself. After locating the appropriate icon within its interface and double-clicking on it once more – voila!… Game connectivity was complete!

If you’re eager to jump into testing your game or otherwise don’t have access to multiple monitors handy, consider taking advantage of screencasting software like ScreenFlow [1] or Jing – which can both allow for convenient desktop sharing between multiple systems connected via their HDMI ports!

1. Move a Game to Another Monitor

If you’ve ever looked around your home office and observed that one monitor is simply insufficient for your needs, then it’s time to consider adding an additional display! There are a few different ways you can accomplish this feat – among them utilizing a second or even third monitor.

If you’re using the second or third LCD display alongside an existing computer, give ’em a tune-up by running through their driver updating process. If you’re running a trio of these devices simultaneously then utilize specialized software such as MultiScreen which allows you to operate multiple displays at once without experiencing any lag in response time!

2. Turn on the Screen Resolution Switching

To access the Screen Resolution Adjustments, select the option that corresponds with your monitor – if you have multiple monitors connected, this will be a suitable solution!

If you’re playing on an HD display and increase the resolution to 4K UHD, your game’s visuals may not appear as sharp as when played at 720p resolution. On the contrary, if you lower down from 4K UHD to HD or even 1024×768; it’ll yield a perceptibly reduced resolution compared to what was originally intended for such devices.

To optimize your gameplay experience by enabling the Screen Resolution Switching function, simply input its respective numeric value into your PC’s native configuration tool. From there on out, you can make adjustments with ease – perfect for saving time while maximizing performance!

3. Set Up the Borderless Gaming Window Mode

Enabling a borderless gaming window mode can be done within the NVIDIA control panel. To do so, locate the Settings tab – then select it from the drop-down menu or press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+G (Windows) or Cmd+Option+Shift+G (Mac) to open it.

With this option enabled, your primary display will remain active and surrounded by an insubstantial, transparent frame; however all other monitors will have their borders removed so you can utilize them for side-by-side gameplay with ease!

4. Move a Game to Another Monitor with Windows 10 Game Modes

In order to adopt the benefits of Dual-Screen gaming, you’ll need to make sure that your chosen title is compatible with it. When prompted by Windows 10 during the installation process, simply check the box next to ‘Support this mode’ and then choose a configuration; if everything appears in place there should be no problems!

If not, don’t fret! Before going about installing drivers, NVIDIA has developed its own solution for enabling Save/Switch Game modes on supported GPUs – aptly named GeForce Graphics Driver. With just a few clicks you can easily toggle between different display configurations and monitor sizes without overwriting any settings! To locate the most appropriate driver from NVIDIA select <|link|>.

Enabling NVIDIA’s Gamestorm personality allows you to tweak the Master Display settings found within GeForce Experience for optimal performance:

Select the Monitor you would like as your primary display (normally here we’d select our primary screen) Select Manage Displays > Add or Remove Monitors… Enter Number 1 or 2 beside each desired display size To add another monitor simply enter an additional one after pressing Enter For instance: if you only have 2 monitors available but would like to utilize both spaces when they are both turned on simultaneously while displaying something else on their secondary displays – simply follow these instructions before adding yet another monitor into this setup. After making sure all displays present are selected, press [Enter] followed by selecting <|link|> once again to complete your selection

5. Use a Third Monitor for In-Game Help or Merchandise

In some instances, it may be advisable for a game to provide an in-game tutorial that explains how best to play. This could be achieved through sound effects or simple cutscenes – but sometimes, it’s just not possible without sacrificing the quality of graphics on your primary display.

To resolve this conundrum, consider using a third monitor as an auxiliary display with a higher resolution than the standard 2k (2K is 1920 x 1080). With this configuration in place, you can utilize both displays while simultaneously running older versions of the game with reduced fidelity alongside newer versions which tend to have crisper visuals; perfect for when players might need assistance.

More Tips

Be confident in your command of the game console, as well. If you’re playing a tiny title or an out-of-the-gate difficulty level, chances are that you won’t necessarily need to alter any settings for the second monitor.

If it’s imperative for you to increase the size of your display or rectify a fault, I would advise experimenting with various resolutions and aspect ratios before deciding on one solution.

Get the Most Out of Your Gaming Spaces

If you only have one monitor available to you, there are still a few tricks that can help you maximize your gaming space.

You can utilize multiple displays by utilizing a technique called multi-monitors. This allows users to utilize multiple screens simultaneously in order to extend the experience beyond what any single display could provide!

For instance, by utilizing two monitors, gamers can play games on both screens and use each of them as a separate window with their own set of controls when it comes time to take action in one game while simultaneously monitoring another application through split-screen mode.


If you find yourself frequently switching between your primary and secondary displays, then this next tip is going to come in handy!

Did you know that the game window can be resized? Utilizing the cursor and arrow keys to adjust a display’s size is an easy way to maximize viewing flexibility.

Give it a try – simply enlarge the window until it fills your screen; then, use your cursor to navigate back to its original dimensions.
