Two Monitors

Asked by Stephen Warren on 2016-12-02

I have two monitors on my Windows 10 PC. I'd like to either have Stellarium launch in the other window or be able to move it to the second display after launching.

You can edit config.ini file (see section [video])

I did not locate the video but I found in "CONFIG.INI" the following:

[video]
fullscreen = true <---Changed to false - This caused Stellarium to launch in a window.
maximum_fps = 10000
minimum_fps = 18
screen_h = 768
screen_number = 0
screen_w = 1024
screen_x = 0
screen_y = 0
viewport_effect = none

Thanks Alexander Wolf, that solved my question.

No, please try set screen_number = 1

Alex - Thanks for the suggestion. I've modified a couple more of the ini parameters to launch to the upper screen, launch in a window almost full screen. Here is what I have set in mine.

[video]
fullscreen = false
maximum_fps = 10000
minimum_fps = 18
screen_h = 1000
screen_number = 1
screen_w = 1920
screen_x = 0
screen_y = 0
viewport_effect = none
