Picture and Fax Viewer Slideshow on Windows Server 2003


  • Hi

    We are presently running windows server 2003. We have connected to it one monitor, on which everything is working fine. We have mounted on the wall near it, a large 42" LCD screen that we want to rotate through photos off the server for our clients to see. What is the best way to make this happen?

    So far I have tried duplicating the desktop (cant seem to find an option for this, only to extend the desktop)

    On this, I thought that would do, but then when I opened the images through windows picture and fax viewer, the start slideshow will only bring it up on monitor 1 and I cant find a way to make it show on monitor 2

    There are quite a lot of reasons we want to have the two monitors, rather than just run everything through the large screen.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance
