Closed Extending my desktop via y splitter in Win 7 Tags: Configuration Windows 7 Desktops Monitors Last response: March 7, 2012 1:45 AM in Windows 7 Share theforeclosureguy October 9, 2011 10:57:17 PM Hello, Please confirm that a windows 7 desktop cannot be extended across multiple monitors via a common vga or dvi y splitter. Right now it only clones, and doesn't extend. So is the box of y splitters I have just a pile of junk now?

Any splitter is only going to clone the signal, no matter what the source. Score 0 edd21 March 7, 2012 1:45:22 AM This is a lie. Emphasis on the extended desktop function of this vga splitter. http://aluratek.com/2-port-vga-video-splitter I also use one at work, a basic cable only vga splitter, with an out dated Dell desktop with one vga output getting an extended desktop. I don't understand where this myth came from... Score 0 Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Read discussions in other Windows 7 categories Configuration Customization Drivers Security Laptops !
