What Can I Help You With?
While in the calibration screen, hit the “Enter” key. The calibration screen will toggle between monitors so you can calibrate the extended desktop and have all of the MimioStudio Tools functionality. You can also change the active monitor (usually monitor #1) to the extended desktop monitor.
Note: If using the MimioPad, this only works on the primary monitor. Click here for info on MimioPad on Extended Desktop.

My MimioProjector does not work with my Windows 7/8/10 PC when set as an extended desktop. What do I do?
By default, the auto-calibration built into MimioStudio will use the screen that is set as the main display. Also by default, the PC is the main display and the projector is the secondary display if you’re using an extended desktop.
If you want to calibrate the extended display, you will need to set the projector as the main display and the PC as the secondary display. You can do this by right-clicking on your desktop and selecting “Screen Resolution.”
Once you’ve made this adjustment, unplug the USB cable going from the projector to the computer and plug it back in. It should auto-calibrate the projected image.
After the calibration, switch it back so the PC is the main display and the projected image is the secondary display. You should still be able to use touch on the extended display.
The MimioPad only works on the primary monitor. You can change your second monitor to be the primary monitor if you want to use the MimioPad on the projected screen.
