That sounds like one of the GUIs I suggested you install in post #8.

Yes I did install the GUI per your earlier post while it graphically displayed the two screens next to each other it just wouldn't get the displays to function as laid out in the GUI. Don't know why perhaps a change in the build??? (10 to 12)

Anyway thanks all.

No worries -- glad you got what you were wanting, regardless which way you got it
