Plan on upgrading to Windows 8 Pro 64bit from Windows 7 64bit, in about 6 days, Just wondering if my 1280x720 Monitor will be compatible with Windows 8, or should i get a DVI-D adapter for my older 19 inch LCD monitor--if it still works that is lol, hasn't been powered up since i got this new PC in June, current adapter won't plug into DVI ports--so guess need a newer one
Well meant the resolution in relation to Metro, but i think found solution for that, so think should be ok when i upgrade to Windows 8 Pro 64bit
Requirements say 1024x768 This monitor 1280x720
Other LCD monitor resolution is 1280x1024, but oh well, unless i can manage to get a new DVI-D adapter before the 26th
Solution found is just registry editing, to allow downscaling, and make Windows think my monitor is 1024x768 size from what i understand. Think the VGA to DVI-D adapter for the other monitor is missing some pins and why it won't connect, so it's ok, i'll just follow the directions with Solution 1, and have this PC perfect with WIndows 8
Well still wanna upgrade to Windows 8, eventually gonna get a higher res monitor when i can, but for now this will have to do, or i purchase new DVI-D adapter for my other monitor sometime, Other Monitor is a 19 inch LCD 1280x1024...
I dont think the snap feature is that big of a deal. It allows you to see a Metro app and a desktop app running at the same time or two Metro apps. Thats fairly minimalist in terms of multitasking and the desktop has no need of it so no real loss there IMO.
BTW, if you have two monitors as you said what is stopping you from using both monitors on the same system at the same time? I think that trumps the snap feature quite summarily.
Yeah i could do that in the future, just would have to get bigger desk, currently both monitors don't fit on the desk, and other monitors VGA to DVI adapter missing some pins, so can't use that one right now, but will get a new VGA to DVI-D adapter soon as possible
