Windows 10 Dual Displays only working on one display

So just attempted my first installation with Windows 10 (after being on Chromeboxes and Windows 7 for so long). This is our demo unit running with dual, side-by-side displays, thus the presentation resolution is 3840x1080. Windows is properly recognizing extended desktop with two displays.

All went well except that it's detecting my setup (display) as only 1920x1080 resolution. Now it is only showing my presentation on the left monitor, and the right monitor is black. This exact presentation was working great on Windows 7 for the past couple years.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Windows 10 64-bit Rise installer to see if that would help but same result.

Anything I can do or check?

Hi bhawley,

At this time, Rise Player does not support multi-monitor display unless the OS itself sees both displays as one large resolution display. Only some hardware handles this, and it's called stretched mode.

If you need multiple-monitors right at the moment, the only option is the Rise Player Chrome Application, which is an extension to the Chrome browser. You can find it atĀ

    If you cannot see the second monitor(s) listed, click Detect. If this does not work, try to reconnect the cables on your monitor, restart the computer and repeat steps 1 and 2.
