When I first installed Lightroom, I had (2) 15" VGA (Dell 15" LCD &Acer 15" LCD)  monitors pluged into the built in graphics controler & I was able to use 1 for the filmstrip, controls, etc... and the other for the image I was working on. When I upgraded to a single Acer 24 LCD wide screen HD monitor with a Raedeon HD 5450 2GB graphics card, I disconnected both of the other VGA/LCD monitors. After doing some work in Lightroom, I missed having the abilty to have the image on a seperate screen. So, I installed one of the old monitors. However, now Lightroom will only let me work on 1 screen.

When I look at the "System Info" window, it says I only have (1) display.

Can anyone tell me how to get Lightroon to detect my 2nd monitor?

Running Windows 10 Pro, Intel Core i7-4790 CPU, 16GB RAM

Hi Frank,

 

We're sorry for the dual-display issue. Check out the following article to setup multiple displays in Lightroom Classic: https://lightroomkillertips.com/using-two-monitors-lightroom/

 

Let us know the outcome.

Thanks,

Mohit

Mohit: Thank you for the response. I thought I had set this for notifications but I guess not. I have "Lightroom" but not "Lightroom Classic". I thought I had dual screens before when I first installed Lightroom. Does Lightroom have this feature? Did I not install the correct one?  If I am mistaken, & Lightroom doesn't support dual screen, How can I switch? Are they the same price?
