    Hi, Helmwill. Welcome to the forum. Hang in there. Someone will eventually answer. I'm not familiar with dual monitors in 8, but I hear it's a nightmare with Metro and resolution. I can't help you, but in the mean time I suggest you do an advanced search with the word "monitor" and select "search titles only". There should be some help for you there. Good luck.

    Hi, welcome to forums

    First of all this is not the browser issue. But I think you can do following things and see whether your issue got resolved:

    1. Try to create new user account from {Start -> click Control Panel -> click User Accounts and Family Safety -> and then click User Accounts.}

    2. Reinstall combo monitors

    Hope this helps, in the next reply provide us the resolution capability of your PC.
