How to split one 4K monitor or TV into 4 virtual screens using UltraView Desktop Manager software

Sharing buttons:

hello again and thanks for using ultra

view desktop manager this video is shot

in 4k on a 4k screen so be sure to

select the highest available playback

quality when watching this we're back on

our 4k screen with font scaling set to

100% we've signed out signed back in now

we're ready to set up some screen splits

to make this single large 4k screen

behave like for smaller 1080p screens if

you do the math you'll see there's a

single 43 inch screen with 4k resolution

is like having a 2 by 2 array of 21 and

a half inch screens each running 1080p

resolution that's actually identical

size and quality with our Zen view quad

22 array except there's just a single

monitor connection instead of the need

to connect four separate DV eyes to your

PC there are pros and cons to each

approach a quad screen is a better

choice when you have multiple separate

pcs and there are a few applications

programmed in such a way that ultra view

can't intercept their window drawing

functions and reposition them

consistently but we can come back to

that detail later for now let's start

with a simple preset 2x2 split right

click in the empty desktop background

mouse over ultra view desktop manager

click monitor configuration

here's your single 4k screen and in this

example I've connected a second smaller

screen off to the side just to

illustrate selecting a screen when you

click on it its highlighted and you'll

see its resolution make sure that you've

got your 4k screen selected then click

splits and padding click on preset

splits you'll see a bunch of vertical

horizontal and grid splits we're going

to choose a 2x2 grid so now you have 4

1920 by 1080 sub screens click OK notice

the splits now on the 4k monitor ready

to apply also notice these 4 checkboxes

at the bottom make sure all for all

or checked for the moment now we're

gonna click apply the task bars will pop

up and the wallpaper will change it'll

take a few seconds there it is okay

now this looks more like four monitors

we've got task bars on each the

wallpapers add to the effect and now

when you launch an app or move a window

you have these extra icons up in the

title bar this is the move to monitor

icon and you can move it to one of these

virtual sub monitors let's launch a few

more browser windows so you can see this

function on these four sub screens in

any browser ctrl n launches another

browser so two three four let's load for

different news sites here's one let's

move this window down here

here's another site let's move this

window up here

and at the normal magnification which

you can get by hitting ctrl zero in your

browser you'll notice you've got a lot

of you've got a lot of white space on

the edges of every page and this

actually one way around this is you can

simply zoom in on the page if you hold

down the control key and scroll your

mouse wheel in and out you can increase

the magnification on pages and back down

to the default 100% is simply ctrl 0 but

for a lot of these websites and a lot of

applications in general you'll find that

1920 by 1080 is is probably a little too

wide and it's not it's not the most

efficient use of a 4k screen for

business applications so in the next

video we'll show you how to split it

into 6 screens 3 over 3
