At least 2, and likely no more. The Retina 5K iMac can support an external 4K (UHD) (3840x2160 @60Hz) monitor AND a second external monitor up to at least 1920x1200 (60Hz) at the same time. This is the setup I am currently using. No special tricks needed. Machine: Core i5 3.5 GHz, Radeon R9 M295X 4GB VRAM graphics card (BTO upgrade), 16 GB RAM, Yosemite ...

Yes that is possible! But all you need is a mini-Displayport to mini-Displayport cable. Skip this upscale Thunderbolt to Thunderbolt cable. You'll find mini-Displayport to mini-Displayport cables much cheaper in other retailers. For example Amazon..

Just FYI: I got same setup, and while being totally inconvenient, it actually works if you plug in both screens via the DisplayPort connector.

System prefs > Mission Control... uncheck 'Displays have separate Spaces' That would be my prime suspect. I switched that one off the day it appeared in the OS. From comments, that will disable the ability to move the menu bar & dock to each screen on an ad-hoc basis, though - which may be best asked as a separate question requesting a possible 3rd ...

Found issue to be in the display assembly. I assume something on the control board got shorted or is not functioning properly, causing EFI to not recognize the screen at boot.

Try adding in a Keyboard Shortcut using system preferences. I have mine to execute the Zoom option located under the Window tab at the top of most browsers and applications. I changed the Command + Return + Shift from the default to my new shortcut zoom. This will resize the window to fit the screen and if a different/smaller screen size is desired, you can ...

Most apps will also resize their window to fit your screen if you double-click anywhere on the top bar (title bar).

In my experience, moving most windows from a large display to a smaller display automatically resized it to fit height-wise. If it does not automatically do so, clicking the Green Maximize/Zoom button in the title bar should make it fit to the current screen/window content. If the application works with full screen mode, hold the Option key while clicking ...

Dragging the status bar (in Display Settings) to the screen you want as default worked for me! :)

You can absolutely use display link drivers. I have an Intel Iris Graphics 6100 1536 MB graphics card in my 8gb Mac Book Pro (early 2015) 13 in. It drives 2 24 in Dell displays via with mindvi (normal fps) and four other Dell 24 in monitors using usb 2.0 -->minidvi adapters at 12-15fps. Not great for video or gaming, but just fine for email/documents/command ...

This may not be a full fix. In the Display setting. Click the Arrange Tab. You will see how the Screens are being arranged. There you can adjust the layout. But more importantly you can drag the menu bar icon ( white line at the top of one display) across to the screen you want as primary. I would try that and see if you at least can get starting in at ...

The problem was a cheep VGA cable. Replacing the cable sorted out the resolution.

What I have found out is that TDM (Target Display Mode) on my mid 2010 27" iMac only works with the following resolutions: 720p (1280*720) or lower Native (2560*1440) Any device that tries to output something in between, gets a signal it has to change it's resolution to 1280*720. Many devices can automatically do this (Xbox 360, PS4), but some can not ...

UPDATE 2 These are the support instructions for using multiple monitors with Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and earlier. You will likely want to use the Extended Desktop Settings. If you still doesn't let you see the other app, then check to see if FCP has an Always On Top setting which may be turned off, and don't have the apps set to full-screen mode. ...

It depends which MacBook you have. The cheaper ones only have integrated graphics processor (Intel Iris Graphics 6100) which runs from your CPU. The expensive ones have a separate graphics card (AMD Radeon R9 M370X) with 2Gb memory which supports more display or higher resolution displays. Macbook with integrated Intel graphics: Dual display and video ...

https://support.apple.com/kb/PH18757?locale=en_US This link explains it. Its a new(ish) feature. You can zoom to mission control (f3) or for those with a MacBook, and you have new haptic track pad, you just three finger scroll up and if you move your cursor to the top right corner of your screen you will see a plus sign appear. Click on this to add a new ...

Depending on your PC specs you may use a VGA or HDMI USB KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) switch. This will allow you to connect 2 or more computers to one screen, mouse and keyboard, and switch between them pressing a button. The keyboard and mouse must be USB (wired or wireless) in this case, so they work on both computers. There are plenty on Amazon and ...

Cross your fingers and stand on one leg. More seriously, you probably need to delete related plists. Try deleting this: /Users/<your name>/Library/Application Support/Dock/desktoppicture.db

I have fixed the problem. What I did is: under System Preference - > Displays go to Color Tab. I calibrated both the displays differently to match color with each other.

You can switch Applications by using ⌘ command+tab. Tabbing through the list of applications can be done by holding the ⌘ command key and continually hitting tab. This will automatically shift focus to the selected app no matter which screen or monitor on which it resides. Therefore, swapping between IDE and browser is easily done without mapping new ...
