What is collage mode (also known as combined desktop)?


Collage Display/ Combined Desktop is a feature that enables you to share one image across multiple independent displays, regardless of the panel or monitor type. The number of supported displays depends on the capabilities of your computer or motherboard. See below for more details.

  • The minimum number of displays required to use Collage Display is two.
  • The maximum number of displays for Collage Display, without an external splitter, is three.
  • Using an external DisplayPort* splitter, the maximum number of displays is four.
  • In Windows® 10 and Windows 11*, a Local Flat Panel (LFP), such as laptop built-in display, will not count towards the number of displays when using collage mode. Only an External Flat Panel (EFP) will count towards the number of displays in collage mode.

Check with your computer or motherboard manufacturer for more information.
