lightbulb-4 Custom monitors are particularly useful when using a display splitter, such as the Matrox "Dual/Triple Head 2 Go" products. A single display adapter on the computer is connected to the input with the two or three outputs connected to the physical monitor/projector. Windows identifies this as one (very wide) output. Custom monitors would be defined as the left, center or right 33% of that display adapter. Search with the terms "DualHead2Go" or "TripleHead2Go" for details.
