    Ok so I finally gave in and went to Windows 10 when my 8.1 install crapped the bed. Everything seems fine, but I'm having constant issues trying to switch between surround and extended. It seems like half the time I have to go back in and actually use the nvidia control panel to turn surround on after turning it off with keybinds. Is this a driver issue or is it a windows 10 issue?

    I'm on a single 1080TI.

    Am I seriously the only person that has issues switching between surround and extended? I find this hard to believe.

    Yeah, I find the lack of multi monitor setup profiles annoying.
    Due to HDMI devices sometimes disappearing, automated changes to the config as devices power up dont always keep their setup.

    Not quite the same thing but since I used an HDMI switch that set the res to 640x480 when no attached devices were active, I now get all my windows resized to 640x480 if the display goes into power saving, even though it is no longer connected.
    I tried deleting all the monitor profiles in the registry but it still happens.
    Really f***ing annoying!!
    With multi monitor profiles this could be prevented.

    I am on Windows 7 and would like gfx card drivers to support this.
    You cant expect MS to do what customers want or need on Windows 10.

    Is there a reason you need to switch extended from nSurround?

    Certain games don't play well in surround. Also, it's impossible to maximize youtube videos in 1 screen while using surround.
