Multi-monitor configurations today are not rare, yet many game developers seem to ignore this fact. Some of them do this intentionally like Blizzard who doesn’t want multi-monitor computer owners to take advantage over those who have only one monitor. Others simply don’t bother much about this issue. When you play games on a system with two or more monitors, such a game usually locks the mouse cursor within the host monitor, so you have no other option than alt-tab it if you need to switch to another task. This is true for Blizzard’s Starcraft II and Diablo 3, the Total War series, and many other game titles.
Of course, locking the mouse cursor within the game screen is a somewhat standard practice, but what if I want to play the game my way? I found the tool called Actual Multiple Monitors that saves the day. Not only does it unlock the mouse cursor allowing me to move it freely across all of my monitors, but it also can stretch the gaming screen to multiple monitors even for those games that originally do not support such option as long as they run in a window. This allows playing games on one screen with all apps running on the rest monitors still easily available with no task switching or minimizing. At the same time if you prefer the game to utilize all available screen space, the tool offers such opportunity too. Not only does a larger game screen look great by itself, but it also can be helpful for public presentations and live-gaming shows.
So, how the thing works? You just need to press a predefined keyboard shortcut, which immediately unlocks the mouse cursor and allows moving it beyond the screen edges of the host monitor. If you need to get back to the default behavior, press another shortcut combination.
Hope this tip will be helpful for those who wants to enjoy the advantages of using several monitors when playing games!
