    I want to split a 32" monitor which is placed vertically into two top-down virtual monitors that can work like two different physical monitors. What good tools (software) are available? Thanks!

    I knew I could search on the internet. Please provide advice from your first-hand experience. Thanks!

    I used to use something like this, i will see if i can figure out what the tool was called.

    I think it was this one, i can check tomorrow or you can download a trial from the link below:

    Here is some more information on how it works:

    The reason why i went with this one is that with this software you can go full screen in each of the "monitor" you created within your actual monitor, even with for example YouTube videos, something most other tools couldn't do.

    I've tried VDM. It works great! Thank you so much for the info!

    The tool you recommended is wonderful. However, that's not exactly what I needed. Yours is hardware; while what I needed is software.

    please demonstrate on your monitors.

  10. What you want sounds like a routine Windows Extended Desktop function. No additional software or hardware should be required.
