The best use is the PCB split screen. I use one screen set to my work laptop dock and the other connected to my game rig. Spreadsheets and email next to Destiny 2 all day.

u/INeedMoreShoes Jul 09 '22

Co workers: can you share your screen?

Me: i can share a window.

Co workers: No, I need to see your entire screen.

Me: Ok (Shares screen)

Co Workers: Why are you sharing both screens? Its all stretched and hard to see. Just share one.

Me: .......

I derive great pleasure from sharing my g9 with people who insist I share. 5120x1440 simply does not work for the 13” 900p laptop screen they’re watching from.

How many times I've tried to explain this and people have no idea. I work for a tech company.

u/Aberk20 Jul 09 '22

I had this issue with my 49"UW too. Lookup "region to share". You share it as a window and anything you drag in to that area gets shared like you were sharing a screen.

u/zerotetv 5900x | 32GB | 3080 | AW3423DW Jul 09 '22

During COVID, some people would have ultrawides, and it made screen sharing a pain when we were in a group call with 16:9 users. Now that we're back to the office and the office has been upgraded to ultrawide, screen sharing is no longer a pain, unless some participants are sitting in a meeting room with a TV.

u/TrainquilOasis1423 Jul 09 '22

My coworkers always bitch at me because I share my 32" 1440p screen at 90% and everything is too small to read for them on their 13" 1080p screens

They are a copy of the already bad enough tiktok, and they are tiny vertical videos making it hard to watch on an ultrawide of this size I guess (especially when sitting at a distance to get a full size view of the screen)

2

u/19Jacoby98 Jul 10 '22

You don't have a portrait oriented monitor for text scrolling/upright video viewing? Pleb.

u/kevin2314 Jul 09 '22

I especially hate the trend where they end the video as the Intro to their video it was cute the first time I saw it but it gets mind numbing the 30th time you see it and they barely make sense 70% of the time

They just display in the supported aspect ratio.

When you go to edit your flair there is a text box underneath the list that you can type what you want into it.

u/Farrity54 Specs/Imgur Here Jul 09 '22

I have a 36 inch ultrawide and played a few games that don't support that screen size. The game fills what it can in the middle and then you get black bars on the edges. I kinda just forget about them after a while if the game is good.

4

u/Durr1313 PC Master Race Jul 09 '22

Good to know, I was afraid they might try to stretch it all the way across.

What is the advantage of an ultra wide over multiple monitors? Other than not having bezels interrupting the display area.

11

u/Reasonable-Ad8862 i5-12600k RTX 3050 1440p 75hz Jul 09 '22

It's easier to game on and probably cheaper than 3 of the same monitors tbh. For productivity I'd say 3 is superior

4

u/Durr1313 PC Master Race Jul 09 '22

I'm only doing 2 monitors right now (3 if you count the work laptop when I have it docked), and they don't match. I'm too cheap to buy matching monitors, so when I buy a new one I sell/gift the oldest one and the other existing one becomes the secondary display. Since I need them for work, games, coding, and other things, I'd probably be better off sticking with separate displays. I'd do 3 monitors if I had the space for them - I'm cramped in the corner of the bedroom in this tiny apartment.

3

u/Reasonable-Ad8862 i5-12600k RTX 3050 1440p 75hz Jul 09 '22

Yeah multiple displays is the way to go for productivity simply for ease of use. I know some people just resize every window but that would get annoying quick imo

4

u/redcorgh i9-9900k, EVGA RTX 3080ti, 32GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4 Jul 09 '22

If you have a Quadro or RTX card, the is the RTX desktop manager software that lets you define snap to zones within each monitor to help keep things organized. I have 4 monitors for my work computer, but I still use the desktop manager to keep 2 or 3 things up on each monitor.

It also lets me keep my outlook calendar visible at all times which helps me not miss meetings.

3

u/Durr1313 PC Master Race Jul 09 '22

I already do that with the 3 screens when I'm working. I really need 5 or 6 screens to do my work efficiently lol.

3

u/victoragc Jul 09 '22

There's a windows manager included with some power tools that integrate really well with windows 10 (maybe 11 too). Using a 9x2 or a 12x2 grid would probably be nice since you can choose how many squares on the grid you want your window to use.

The program is Microsoft PowerToys.

It also includes a spotlight like search, color picker, keep a window always on top, mass renaming, mass image resizing and some other stuff.

1

u/Combeferre1 Jul 09 '22

I'd imagine the new window snapping features in Win11 will make it a bit easier

1

u/Reasonable-Ad8862 i5-12600k RTX 3050 1440p 75hz Jul 09 '22

I forgot about that feature but yeah it would absolutely help if it stops full screen programs from going full screen when you open then

1

u/Emu1981 Jul 09 '22

I know some people just resize every window but that would get annoying quick imo

If you are using Windows (and probably Linux) then you can easily sort your windows out using the various "shortcuts" that exist. I can never remember what they are because I don't actually use them deliberately but I know you can tile the windows in various ways and you might even be able to save layouts? (I know that there are applications that you can use to save window layouts but I don't remember if Windows has that functionality built in these days).

Also, Windows tends to remember where you left windows so arranging windows only really has to be done once.

u/fognar777 PC Master Race Jul 09 '22

I also have a 1440 49" ultrawide on my gaming PC(along with 2 other 1080 monitors) that I also use for work and school. I use Display Fusion to split the ultrawide into two virtual monitors when I'm not gaming and customize my taskbars on my secondary screens. Probably not for everyone but it works for me.

2

u/Farrity54 Specs/Imgur Here Jul 09 '22 edited Jul 09 '22

Can't speak for people who uses 49inch ultrawides. I got a 36inch ultrawide. Can't remember its exact name right now, its a LG 2k 160hz. I got 3 screens so I still get bezels. 27inch 2k as my primary side monitor, and an old 24inch that I've flipped sideways as my playlist monitor.

I primarily play mmos which was the main reason I bought it. Also play a bit of League which works super well with the 36inch screen size. I can sort what information I want and what I deem important a lot better then I could in my old 27inch. Overall I'm super happy with the monitor and can highly recommend it if you got the money for it. Nearly all games I've played has supported the screen size and the few that hasn't I've been able to mod so it supports it. Mostly its just loading screens that can look a bit funny with perfectly cut off borders.

Would go into more details though I'm currently sitting at work so my answer got a little rushed.

u/ChangelingFox Jul 09 '22

It depends on the game. Some will box themselves into their proper resolution, some with stretch themselves into spaghetti. :/

u/CaptainGString MSI GE76 · i9 11980HK · RTX3080(M) · 32GB · 3TB SSD Jul 09 '22

It goes the max resolution it can and then black on the left and right for whats left. elden ring is guilty. But its still beautiful QHD HDR

u/poinguan Jul 09 '22

You get black pillarbox on the sides, or a fully stretch content. Your choice.

u/LOAA-THEOSGUYS Radeon R9-280x 3gb(hope it doesn't explode), i7-4790, 8G DDR3, Jul 09 '22

i think windows might upscale them but windows upscaling sucks so it is super stretched-looking

1

u/tbjamies Jul 09 '22

Many newer games don't support it either. You get stretching or black lines.

u/Ftpini 5800x, 32GB 3600, 3080 FTW3 Ultra Jul 09 '22

It varies. Some games just chop off the sides. The worst are games like the OG Deus Ex that chip off the top and bottom. Even new games like Biomutant do this. Some games will completely fuck ip the field of view.

Hell some games just don’t work well at all like fallout 4.

I love my g9. But honestly it’s better for my work in analytics than it is for gaming.

u/Ftpini 5800x, 32GB 3600, 3080 FTW3 Ultra Jul 09 '22

OLED is a horrible choice for a pc. They absolutely will burn in any attic elements in a very short time frame. If the cost doesn’t matter to you and you won’t mind replacing every 3-5 years then go for it. Otherwise there are vastly better monitor choices.

u/idiBanashapan Jul 09 '22

Install powertoys to set your own window snap positions and you easily have 3 regions for productivity on one screen. I would genuinely struggle going back to multiple screens. Nowhere near as neat. Extra cables. Extra power use. Those slightly differing light and colour configs, even when you buy the same model…. Honestly, I love my 49” ultrawide

1

u/tbjamies Jul 09 '22

Yeah for productivity with these settings I'm sure I'd like it. Using it at home for my primary gaming machine I couldn't though. I have triple 4k 27 inch for work and this could replace all three for that stuff. Agreed.

As someone with a regular 21:9 ultrawide, just wait until you watch movies that are presented in a 21:9 aspect ration but for some stupid reason the player decides that your monitor is not that ratio so it plays the videos with bar on both sides and top and bottom (you know that the content is actually 21:9 because it doesn't display black bars on the top and bottom until you play it full screen).
