    Multiple Monitors - best software for managing them

    Hi there
    I've been looking at some of the MATROX graphic cards for multi-monitor output -- up to 8 possible !!

    Now any decent software to run these -- the standard software seems OK at running TWO monitors but I want to be able to run several more. You can run more but it gets a bit complicated managing this from within the standard windows system itself.

    I saw this article

    Five Best Tools for Managing Your Multi-Monitor Setup

    Has anybody used any of these or can recommend any better software -- I aim to run 4 monitors initially.

    Personally I would go with an AMD GPU. They have designed the software to do just that and it's automatic, just connect the monitor and your done. AMD has cards where you can add 6 or more monitors them, on just one card, but the catch is those monitors have to use the display port.

    I have used both Display Fusion and UltraMon. I liked Display Fusion over UltraMon, I liked it so much so I bought Display Fusion Pro.

Winkey behavior on multiple monitors
AFAIK the Metro Start will stick to the last display that something metro was used. The problem is, I particularly hate it because I expect something to happen where my mouse is focused, even the WiFi panel appear on the screen that doesn't even have a taskbar. Question is, can I change this?

Desktop Tile Across Multiple Monitors
Currently, I run Windows 7 Pro on dual 24" monitors, and life is good. :):) In Win 8, if I open the desktop tile, I presume that the default action is to open the full-screen desktop app on just 1 of the 2 monitors. I'm guessing that the "Start" screen remains on the 2nd monitor. Can I have...
