Tip of the Day: Multimon and the Start Screen

Today’s Tip…

If you are like me and most of my coworkers, you like using multimon to increase your desktop real estate. My favorite configuration is one larger monitor in the center, flanked by two smaller ones.


One thing I’ve noticed in doing this is sometimes my Start screen will end up on the middle monitor, and sometimes it will show up on either of the end monitors.


Recently I started to wonder (that’s how a lot of tips get created) about how I could pick what monitor the Start screen would appear on. I’d like to have it running on the right side monitor.

The easiest way I found to do this is to hover in the lower left corner of the monitor that I select and get the mini-Start screen.


Then just click on it to bring up the Start screen.

Doing so would pop the Start screen up on that monitor.
