Author Topic: Two screen on one computer, how to run SignagePlayer on screen 2 only?  (Read 6186 times)

I have a system that contains two screens. I want to run SignagePlayer on the second screen only, and not the main screen. How is it possible to sort that out?

Best regards,

unfortunately the system is designed for dedicated signage player computers, so there is no way to do that, only way you can achieve this is if you use the Web Player ( campaign displayed on a web browser) and maximize it on just 1 screen.

I wanted to do the same thing and have a workaround that's been successful so far. It may work for you depending on what you want to run on the main screen.

I have two monitors, the first is a 21.5" touch screen set at 1920x1080 that runs another program; the second is a 21.5" monitor set at 1280x720 that runs the SignagePlayer.

I set up a screen template with size 3200x720 with a single screen division size 1280x720 aligned with the right edge of the screen template. My content plays only on the second monitor. However the SignagePlayer will try to take control of all the screens. I designed the program on the main touch screen monitor so I have commands in the software to move it to the top of the window stack and it plays over the SignagePLayer.

This will probably work for a lot of programs for your main monitor since most programs default to opening on top.

Best of luck,

Hey Dough, I want to do the same thing. Have the window be on top or the player to be on top of all my other windows. Have you found a way to have the Signage Player be on top of all windows?

Please let me know if there is a way.

Thank you!
