Configuring a Secondary Display in Windows

In order to take advantage of the dual-screen output mode in DemoMate, you first need to ensure that your Microsoft Windows computer is configured correctly.
For Windows Vista, follow these steps:
  1. Connect the secondary display (projector, flat-screen TV, monitor, etc.) to your computer.
  2. The following dialog box should appear once the display is connected:

  3. Select the second option, to extend your desktop, and click OK. You’re done!

For Windows XP, follow these steps:

  1. Right-click on the desktop and select Properties.
  2. Switch to the Settings tab. You should see two monitors displayed here, labeled “1” and “2”.
  3. Right-click on the monitor labeled “2” and ensure there is a check next to the Attached option.
  4. In the main Display Settings pane, place a check in the box labeled “Extend the desktop onto this monitor”.

  5. Click OK.

Now you’re ready to present your demos in dual-screen mode. To enable dual-screen presentation mode in DemoMate, simply press the ‘HOME’ key while presenting or previewing a demo. This will switch the demo to training mode. Here, click the Dual-Screen button in the right pane to begin presenting your demo on both screens.
