When enabled, panning allows a high-resolution display on a larger screen, while viewing a zoomed-in version on a smaller screen. An example is a notebook built-in display, or a TV tha supports a fixed or limited resolution.
Not all computers support panning. Check with your computer manufacturer for information about multiple display support.
What is shown on the smaller screen corresponds to the mouse cursor movement. Since the screens are different sizes, the mouse cursor may be at different positions on either screen.
Follow these steps to enable panning:
- Enable clone or extended desktop mode.
- On one of the display devices, select a resolution that is larger than the supported resolution for the display.
- Click Apply. The display selected will now pan.
While the cursor is within the zoomed-in area of the smaller screen, the cursor behaves as normal. As the cursor moves near the edge of the smaller screen, the view pans toward the cursor until the edge of the full screen is reached. This does not affect the view on the larger screen, which stays the same regardless of the activity of the smaller (panned) screen.
