Overview

This article will cover how to configure a monitor to be used as a customer display.  Incorrectly configuring these settings will cause the customer display window to be placed on the wrong monitor.  Please see the references for more information on how to change the logo or create original content to be used for your customer display.

    3. Click on Display Settings.
    4. Click on Identify to display a number on each monitor.
    5. Click on the display matching the number for the customer display.  This is usually the monitor that is identified as two.
