Is it possible to display the screensavers on both monitors when dual monitor is configured?

If you configured the dual monitor as “For Duplicate your displays”, the screensaver can be displayed on both monitors; however, if you choose the “Extended your displays” option, this will not work.

You can change the display settings of your monitor by following the steps:

1. Click Start  and go to "Control Panel - Appearance and Personalization – Display- Change Display Settings".

2. Select the Duplicate these displays option in the Multiple displays drop box.

Then, choose the screensaver and it will be displayed on both monitors.

  • Yeah but this is useless since both monitors are going to have the EXACT same thing so there is no point in having dual monitors like that since it would technically be 1 monitor and the other one is just mirroring or showing the same thing. I use dual for more space and multitasking and the only possible reason I would use this method is just to show off and I would have to keep changing it when I go afk since I don't like the duplicating option...
