    Display lock screen on all three monitors?


    Is there a way to change the default lock screen settings so that it displays on all monitors? For example, I have a triple monitor setup. When I hit Win + L, the lock screen only shows on the middle screen... I'd love for it to show on all three screens if possible.

    Interesting idea, though not sure it can be done. Maybe some one will come up with a way.

    Indeed! As opposed to having a blank screen, then great looking lock screen, then another blank screen, it would be cool to have it duplicated across all three screens when locked.

    Thanks!

    A lock screen "slide show" shows on only my first two monitors of three.
