Sure, you can live in a studio apartment and use your couch both for sitting and sleeping, but wouldn’t you rather have a one-bedroom apartment and stretch out? That’s the theory behind our dual monitor support. We’ve built a tech preview of dual monitor support into HTML Access in VMware Horizon 7.1.

There are some limitations to the feature to keep in mind:

  • Chrome browser only
  • Maximum resolution of 2560X1600 on either monitor
  • High resolution mode must be off

Below is a shot of dual screen in action.
