multiple monitors, multiple ICC profiles?

Q: multiple monitors, multiple ICC profiles?

I have an Envy TS15 with an external secondary monitor (Benq 4k) on the HDMI port.The colour difference between the two is amazing to see when I am working in Photoshop. The Benq is very clearly superior of course but I would like to be able to adjust the profile for the built-in display. I wopuild like to be able to get consistent colour across the two devices. The laptop of course does not have monitor adjustment buttons like an external monitor and seems to only be contollable via the built-in Windows monitor colour calibration - but this does not allow me to get a match between the two monitors (insufficient controls). Is it possible to apply separate colour profiles to the two monitors - currently in extended desktop, if I change the profile on one monitor (in Windows) the profile seems to affect the other. A LUT checker tells me if I change the LUT on the laptop monitor, the same LUT is being applied to the external monitor.Is there for example, a way to control onme with the Intel graphics card and the other with the GeForce 740m card and load LUTs separately?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I want do do some filming of me at my workstation for Youtube. I have three monitors, default color settings for them are fine for my eyes. But if I film them as they are, they are way too bright and have a strong blue tint to them as recorded on my camcorder, so the picture the camcorder records is totally washed out and you can't see anything on the screen. I have two Nvidia Geforce video cards and I can change the colour settings using the Nvidia sliders to make the monitors much darker and less blue, for when I'm filming, so that although it looks "wrong" to me sitting there, it looks "right" on the camcorder, but there's a lot of sliders to get through for the three monitors and there doesn't seem to be any way of saving the results in Nvidia as a distinct profile. Then if I want to go back to "normal" use I have to undo all the changes.

Can anyone point me to a method either in Windows or a separate application that would enable me, at the click of a mouse, to go from having three monitors at "correct, normal" colour and brightness settings to "being videod for Youtube" settings, and a single click back again without deleting the special colour settings please?

A:Switching between color profiles, multiple monitors

CCC (catalyst control centre) has the option of setting all the options and saving it as a profile, setting other options and saving it as another profile, you can then easily swap between profiles form the icon in the task bar.

I have attached a second monitor to my laptop which runs Windows 7, however, I need to set different resolutions for different monitors, because the display does not fit to fill the screen on both monitors.

It is also noted that the display is replicated, and I would like to have the effect of having different desktops e.g. being able to use different applications such as debugging code on one monitor on an IDE such as Visual Studio, and, viewing the browser on the other monitor.

Currently it does not seem possible since the behavior seems to be that the same resolution is replicated on both monitors.

Are more than two monitors supported?

A:Working with multiple monitors does not allow multiple desktops

Set it to extended mode instead of duplicate, then you can use both independently.

It has been my practice with prior versions of Windows OS's to set up multiple printer profiles, one for drafts, one for color, etc. "The Devices and Printers" section allows me to create such profiles, but does not show them individually. When I delete them in Windows, they are not deleted in the browser and WordPerfect. Advice would be welcome.

To associate multiple color profiles to one device

Open Color Management by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type color management, and then click Color Management.
Click the Devices tab.
From the Device list, select the color device that you want to associate with one or more color profiles.
Select the Use my settings for this device check box, and then click Add.
In the Associate Color Profile dialog box, do one or both of the following:
If you want to use a color profile that’s already installed on your computer, click the color profile in the list, and then click OK.
If you want to use a custom color profile that isn’t installed on your computer, click Browse, locate the custom color profile that you want to use, and then click Add.
The selected color profile (or profiles) is now associated with the device and can be used by programs that use Windows Color Management to describe the color characteristics of that device. To use the newly associated color profile as the default color profile for the selected device, click Set as Default Profile.

I have a Ti 4600 8x and everything was running smoothly...

The only video game I play is Unreal Tournament 2004, and one day it started acting funny. For maybe 30 or so seconds it runs smoothly and then things just freeze for 2 or 3 seconds... i can run the same but i can't see my bullets, and if i a person was moving to the right, they keep moving to the right. Then it goes back to normal for 30 or so seconds and then glitches up for 2 or 3 again... repeat. Same all on servers.

So I rebooted my computer after reinstalling my video driver and now what was originally display 1 is now display 2 and vice versa. Normally I'm a pretty flexible guy and could care less and did care less about that till i tried to move to my 2nd monitor (now display 1 on my right side)... so to go to the right monitor i have to move my mouse left and to get back to my left monitor i have to go right. I ran into the wall in the middle a couple of times out of habbit, snapped, and now I'm posting a thread.

Whenever I start Windows 10, two profiles show, one requires a username/password and the other just required password. Is there anyway to just log in without requiring a password? If not, how can I just have the profile that only requires the password to default and remove the other?

Set up accounts - Windows Help

This shows how to setup an account.

If there are 2 accounts, delete the one where you manually have to enter username and password.

If 1 is only present

Create a new user account and see if you get the same result.

If not, transfer all of your files from the old account to the newly created account.

If you do have the same result with 2 accounts on a new user account,

Right click on start menu, click Command prompt (admin)

Type sfc /scannow

This will find any system file corruptions and repair them.

After scan is complete, type chkdsk C: /F

Type y and press enter to confirm scan on next reboot to check for file system errors.

You also may have a registry corruption, but that can be explored if the above options fail

I need to have one profile load with a particular DNS configuration, and another load with automatic properties.

I run two networks in my office: workgroup and Active Directory. Active Directory clients need to have DNS manually configured so their AD profile loads quickly. Workgroup client have tcip and dns configured to automatic.

However, when AD client laptops attempt to access the internet away from the office, they are unsuccessful due to the static DNS setting. I'd like to be able to have two hardware profiles available at system boot-up, i.e. Office Network, Non-office Network.

The office network hardware profile would run with the static dns when users are in the office, and the non-office network would pull tcip and dns automatically.

I've tried to create this, but network properties remain the same for all hardware profiles. Is there another way to accomplish what I have in mind? Perhaps a script or batch file that runs at startup. The routine would watch for certain conditions when out of the office.

For example, if a static DNS address is detected at startup, a registry hack would run to clear that out. At system shutdown, another registry hack would run to add back the same static DNS address. This way, when the system is lauched away from the office, tcip and dns would be set to automatic as a result of the registry. This obviously would enable internet access.

Can't answer your question directly, but can offer ...

IF your office network also uses a static IP address and IF your office network does not have a Dhcp server then you can leave the TCP/Properties 'General' tab at 'obtain auto' and put your office network settings on the 'Alternate Configuration' tab.

Hello all,
I have a question about user profiles. We have a lot of computers that have up to 200 user profiles stored on them, mostly for policemen and firemen who share computers. What I am wondering is if there is a simple way, or a utility that will help us put all of those profiles on to a different PC in case we need to replace a hard drive or install a new computer. I know XP has the files and settings transfer wizard but that only seems to work on one profile at a time; what I am praying for is something that will take all of the profiles and copy/move them at once.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!

First timer here. Hoping somebody can help.

What I'm trying to do is toggle back & forth between two user profiles within Outlook while it's open and running (just as you're able to within Outlook Express).

Let me further explain...
1. I set up multiple user profiles for Outlook 2002. (Not a problem)

2. When starting Outlook it'll ask me to select a profile.
Then, Outlook will open the selected profile accordingly. (which is fine)
However, to be able to switch from one profile to the other
(e.g. - Switching from Profile A -to- Profile B),
I must close Outook, restart it, then select Profile B.

3. Summary: I don't want to have to close Outlook & restart it to switch
between multiple profiles.

Does anybody know if this is possible? If so I'm hoping you'll be kind enough to explain how to make this happen in an elementary like way so that I don't screw things up.

We are trying to setup two email accounts for each user in our office using Outlook 2003. One account is a basic POP3, and the other is using Windows Server 2003's POP3 Service to use as an intraoffice account. The problem occurs when sending. If the webmail account is set as the default, any intraoffice email won't send. And, if the intraoffice account is set as the default, webmail won't send. I know the problem must be with the default account's SMTP. I was wondering if Outlook can determine what SMTP to use depending on the recipient's email address. I hope that makes sense. THANKS!!

Follow this to install Microsoft Family Logon. Then in the article click on the link for "Description of User Tools on ControlPanel" to setup UserProfiles. That's all there is to it. After it's setup you'll get a logon box at startup where each user must logon to get their own set of preferences. When you're setting up the user profiles you'll see a set of selections for what you want to customize. If it's only Favorites you want customized then just select Favorites. The other stuff like Desktop, etc.. will be universal if not selected.

If you customize the view entry, you can add "From." Then when you send an email, you can choose what email address to send it from.

I want to have separate profiles setup in Win 7 64 where by:

Shows one login/user when the system locks and depending upon the password provided....
....system opens the appropriate, linked profile.
Have searched forums, Google, etc...and have come up with nothing. If this is a piece of software or a Win7 Hack....I'll do whatever is required.
Think about this if you're a programmer!!! I travel frequently and sometimes need the ball and chain to reboot the system or do something on the local machine but I don't need her snooping (things aren't so great at home). I already use LogMeIn and it works great but I believe in Belt and Suspenders. With something like this, you could give someone "your password" and not have to worry because it is a FRONT account.

So, in short;
Multiple Windows User Profiles

Linked by separate passwords
with different access rights to folders, drives, programs, etc...
but each only pulls up what is tied to that account/profile based on THE PASSWORD input.


This is or would be the ultimate security tool!!!!

A:Possible - MULTIPLE Win 7 user profiles with DIFFERENT PASSWORDS???

Windows Users are based on the account name, not password, and assigns rights based on user ACL, not password. Even if you were able to get to where one user account could use multiple passwords, you'd also have to rewrite the Windows security ACL mechanism to allow different rights to the same user based on the password. What you are asking is by no means trivial, and seems kind of counterproductive too - you can simply log in with different user accounts and passwords. Is there a reason or scenario where specifically you'd want to do it this other way?

Hi!, OldDogEyes welcome to W7F

It would be difficult, unless you could keep them separate somehow.

You would have to preface the laptop features with laptop, and in turn the desktop with the desktop's features.

It would be nice if the system specs area was like a spreadsheet,
Then column A would be Laptop, and column B the Desktop.
You would still have to alert other members that are reading your post as to which system your asking about.

I didn't see anything in the rules/info about it.

But it is a good question. I'm going to see if one of the mods could move your post to the "General Discussion" forum because it would get better visibility there.

I recently reloaded XPsp3 on the machine that has been running XPsp3 for "years." I notice in the System\documents and setting directory that I now have many "users." They include: all users, all users.windows, default user, default user.windows, localservice, localservice.NT authority, Robert (from somewhere in the installation process), Robert Strickland (also from the installation), Robert Strickland.ANTECHOME (computer name during network setup/installation) and Robert~1~str. I also note that the at-the-moment START menu on the screen doesn't correspond to the START menu of any of these "users."

Question:
Can I get rid of any of these "users" and if so how? Can I designate the user name that I want to represent me? And, why doesn't the START menu agree with the START menu as documented under any of the "user" currently listed?

I'd sure like to simplify this installation and, also, understand why this happened. Thanks much.

A:why multiple user profiles and how to delete them

Hiya Niky/Robert and welcome to TSG.

When you reload (or re-install) the operating system, make sure you`ve previously taken anything off the hard drive that you want to keep and format the drive so that you start with a clean disk.

It sounds like you installed over the top of the existing system without formatting first therefore giving you multiple users.

As it stands, you could go into the User options in Control Panel and delete any that are in there apart from yourself although I reckon you`ll probably only find you and a Guest account in there and a re-install will eventually be the cleanest option when you have the inclination.

I have discovered several NT Workstation 4.0 systems on our network that are creating multiple user profiles. They are all NT 4.0 with SP4 an upgrade to a different SP is not an option and Microsoft has not indicated this to be the problem. So far the only fix we have found is a complete rebuild. This is very time consuming as well as annoying. They do not have anything specific about the platform that is common. The registry is of ample size and there are not authintication problems. I have also encountered this problem on a PDC on a different network. Microsoft has to as yet provide me with an answer.
To answer a few more questions...
1) By multiple profiles I mean for the same user... See below.
2) The PDC is running SP6a
3) It is a Domain not a Workgroup
5) 5000+ users
6) I assume the users log out properly, but I cant watch 5000 people...
8) Local not romaing profiles

However, I feel the need to be more specific in what I mean by multiple profiles.

By multiple profiles, I Do mean for the same user. It creates the first profile say.. jagrant for instance then after logging back in later it creates a second.. jagrant.000 profile then a third... jagrant.001 profile... etc...

A:{Advice Given} - Multiple NT User Profiles

Greetings

Check to see which services are running BEFORE a user logs on (ie. set at either boot, system or automatic). Then see if any of them is being run using a USER's account, and not a system or service account.

What sometimes happens is that you install a program that comes with an NT service (like a virus protection software), and during installation either you (or the user that is installing the software) does not click the correct setting and uses their own acount to run the service. So, whenever they start their computer, their NTUSER.DAT file is opened by the service. Then, when they try to logon, NT can not open their NTUSER.DAT file as it is already open. So, it just creates a new profile.

The reason why rebuilding the machine works, is that it is likely that you install the offending service correctly.

Hope that helps

Is it possible to have two instances of OUTLOOK 2000 on the same PC, one configured for CW (Corporate Workgroup), and the other configured for IMO (Internet Mail Only)? Operating System is XP Pro. I want to use the CW profile for VPN work and the IMO profile for work and pleasure NOT related to the VPN account. Thanks
 

A:Multiple Profiles for Outlook 2000

You want something different than multiple profiles. You want Outlook to be configured two different ways. I'm not sure that can be done.

hey all,

just a quick question whilst I await a HJT diagnoses I read in the CC Cleaner tutorial and was not aware that if you have more than 1 user profile on a single machine you have to run CC CLeaner on each user account????? does this also apply to any/all Anti virus, malware, and spyware removers as well?? thanks

A:Multiple profiles on a single machine

Most, if not all, malware/anti-virus scanners will scan all user profiles. CCleaner is annoying because, yes, it has to be run on every account.

Apologies for the rather cryptic subject line, the length limit made it a little hard to explain the exact problem.

That said, I use my cell phone for internet access on my laptop, since it can act as a portable wifi access point.

The problem I'm having is that every time I connect, Windows 8.1 creates a new profile. So I started with "Phone access point", then I got "Phone access point 2" on the second connection, "Phone access point 3" on the third connection, and so on and so on, creating a new profile every time I connect.

Is there any way I can tell Windows 8.1 to use the same network profile whenever it connects to "Phone access point", since it's the same connection as it was last time. It does it correctly for all the other wifi access points I connect to: home, work,, the only one that's causing a problem is the phone's connection.

A:One wifi connection. Multiple profiles. How to avoid?

Yes. Just wait a few before logging into the computer. As long as the phone is setup for Hotspot and the OS is able to find before you log in. It should just use that one profile.

I am having difficulty figuring out why my outlook will not successfully allow me to add an additional pop3 email address. I went thru the steps of adding an email and it only lets me "finish" the process if I select: 'Manually configure server settings or additional server types' (if I dont select that, then it goes thru the motions of configuring and it never works so then it will end up suggesting I select 'manually configure...')...ok, thats fine, so even when I do that and it gets to the end of the prompts and says 'finished' I still cannot use that email address. I will go to 'Tools, Send/Receive' and select the new email address, a pop-up will appear that will ask for the password for the email account. so I input it and select 'ok'. a few moments pass and the pop-up shows up again and has the password in ****'s showing and asks again for the password. so i do it again. and this process keeps repeating until I get tired of it and cancel it.
This is very frustrating! This is my work computer and work email and I need to add a secondary work email address to the outlook.
I even added a secondary outlook profile to use, thinking that would help but it still is doing the same thing. the profile is there but that darn pop up keeps doing its repeated pop-up. I have all my passwords and email addresses correct, I've triple checked that, I've gone on our dns web-hosting server site to verify the email i... Read more

I have six network profiles; currently I am on "Network 6".

(I have two network adapters; only one is connected)

How do I clean up the network profiles safely so that I am back to "Network 1"? Should I uninstall Kaspersky Internet Security, before any attempted cleanup?

A:Deleting multiple network profiles safely

Try this

1) Use your mouse to click the Start menu and select the Control Panel.
2) Click the "Network and Internet" button once the Control Panel loads and select the Network and Sharing Center.
3) Click the "Manage network connections" tab.
4) Look for the old network connections you wish to remove in the scroll box. Depending on how many connections you currently have in Windows it is possible you'll need to scroll a bit to find the one you wish to remove.
5) Click on the old connection you wish to remove.
6) Click the "Remove" button.
7) Confirm your selection by pressing "Yes" when asked whether you are sure you wish to remove the connection. You may also elect to press "Cancel" or "No" to return you to the previous screen and prevent the connection's removal.
8) Note that you can also change network connections through the network wizard. Simply click Start, then "Connect To" and "Show all connections."
9) Select the network connection you wish to change by right-clicking on it and selecting the option you wish. You can choose to "Disable" the connection, which would have roughly the same effect as completely removing it, rendering it inactive.
10)Press the "Delete" key after clicking on a network connection in the Network Connection window. This will completely delete the connection in the same way that removing it from the Control Panel would.

Greetings all,

This is my first post to TSG and I hope someone is able to help me.

I would like to know how to set-up multiple e-mail accounts/profiles in Outlook 2003. My bride and I want to be able to view our own e-mail accounts when we log-in under our respective account or profile. I thought I had done it correctly but when we log-in ALL e-mail is present. Currently, we're just gathering our respective mail which goes to the Inbox. From there we just transfer it to our named folders to keep the Inbox from getting too cluttered.

We are using Outlook 2003 on a machine running Win 98 SE. We have plenty of RAM and HD space so memory/capacity is not an issue.

If a re-install is in order please also advise what files need to be saved so we may retain our address books, contacts, and stored e-mails.

A little history might be in order here too:
We were using Outlook 98 in the past but I could not find that disk after I needed to perform a complete re-install (due to a need to re-format the HD). I had my Outlook 2000 disk from another installation/machine of mine so I installed it instead of tearing up the house (again) looking for the Outlook 98 disk. When I later re-installed ActiveSync on the system for my Dell X-30 Axim I was prompted to install Outlook 2003 from the ActiveSync disk. I did so and figured it would be easier to set up the e-mail profiles/accounts with the more recent version of Outlook than the 98 version (I was unable to figure it out with 98 too).
... Read more

A:Outlook 2003 profiles/accounts (multiple)

Right click the Outlook icon and choose "properties". On the window that opens click the button labeled "Show Profiles". Create seperate profiles for you and your bride. To do that click the "add" button and then follow the prompts. Once you have the profiles created put a check in the box labeled "prompt for profile to use when starting" and then close everything down. Open Outlook and it should ask you what profile you want to load.

Hi all,

I have a Windows XP SP3 OS with Outlook 2007.

I was hoping someone could help me with a batch file that when ran would search through multiple user profiles and delete the outlook.ost file from there profile located in C: Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\

I have the following which is probably totally wrong....

for /d %%K in ("C:\Documents and Settings\*") do del "%%~fK\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.ost")
for /d %%K in ("C:\Documents and Settings\*") do @echo %%K

I have it listing all the profiles as well, but it does not delete the ost file

And if it was possible to show free space before and after batch file was run.

Thanks for any help in pointing me in the right direction with this.

Regards,
Noobie

I am running Windows 2000 Professional Edition, and have a large family. I like to have seperate profiles set up for the different family members, with differences in internet access, program installations, and things of this nature. Everyone has their e-mail account configured with Outlook Express, and I would like to make it so that everyone can log into their accounts from their own profiles, while allowing me to log into all of them from my own. Currently they are all accessible through the Administrator account, and it is very annoying to have to switch to get saved message and download new messages. I want to make sure that all of the saved messages can be seen from the different profiles as well. How can this be configured? Thank you very much in advance for any response.

Have a switched network running TCP/IP. Students have been using 95 client machines. Now have 2 labs with 98. Using user profiles (user.man) for all kids. Problem occurs when they log on to a 98 machine. Since there profile is for 95, the machine goes through gyrations getting things converted. As a result, have disabled profiles for these machines, and users are changing the machines willy-nilly. I want to have a way for users to be able to have a profile for each machine.

Had the idea of making a duplicate user acct for each kid (we use numbers): 4065L to indicate an account for use in the lab (98 machine). Kid would use 4065 acct for other workstations. same home directory. Set the 4065L to look for the profile in somewhere other than the home directory. Questions: will this work?, is it the best way to solve this problem? Ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
 

A:{Advice offered} - Multiple machine profiles for a user

Greetings

Another way to do this, would be to use Policies.

Instead of restricting each profile, you can set a system wide Policy, so that whenever a student logs onto a workstation, it locks the workstation down and restricts access to the Control Panel, to certain Start menu options (like the Run command) etc.

If you look on your NT CD (I can not remember if Policy Editor gets loaded in the basic load for NT Server, I think it does, but it might not), under tools or Utils, you will find it.

The one thing to remember, is to create the policies on the OS that it is going to effect. So, win95 policies must be created on a win95 machine, win98 on a win98 machine and NT policies on an NT machine (ie. you run the Poledit.exe from a PC with the correct OS).

Cheers

Hi Guys and Gals

I am wondering if it is possible to run more than one instance of MS Oultook 2003 at the same time...?

I have two profiles in use, both mine, one has a single email account on it and is for connecting to my client server when on their network to retrieve email sent to me on their domain (they have provided an email account for me on their exchange server), and the other has several email accounts for my other business and private emails.

Can I run two Outlooks...???
 

A:Outlook 2003: running multiple profiles concurrently...

I think you can run two, but only one profile will be used. When you start the second session, the profile you select for it will appear on both. The only thing you can do that I know of is to Configure Outlook to prompt you for a specific profile when the program starts using Multiple Profiles.

I am successfully running 1 external monitor (HDMI), and I am now considering trying to use as a 2d external monitor a Lenovo L192 monitor that is now available to me. Is this possible, and if so, how would I go about doing this? Since the Lenovo's cabling is VGA, I will certainly need an adapter, presumably to USB-C or USB-3.1. But are there any other considerations/limitations that I need to take into account? Thanks for any help that you can give!

Hi JoeSchmoe! Just to clarify, could you provide to us the model of the computer you are trying to use on the monitors? Using an adapter doesn't guarantee that it will be detected so it will be best to use an adapter from Lenovo like this: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/accessories/acc100239. You can check the user guide from the link provided.

This started about Friday of last week. Our computers are configured to do an auto log on. Some of the computers will show a temp profile when they are getting logged in. The only way to get this to go away is by logging off and manually logging in. It will
continue to happen until that is done. This is not effecting any windows 7 or 10 machines we are using. The other thing we noticed is that all of these computers are fully up to date and were wondering if there was an issues with a recent update. Other than
this, we have not really noticed any other patterns and seemed random. We will continue to try to investigate this issue I can add more information when we get some, but was wondering if anyone else had this and how they were able to resolve it.
Thank You,

I am testing the new models of Thinkpad A485 units Model Type 20MV S00U00.OS installs just fine.I have the drivers for enterprise that were downloaded from the lenovo site, they installed just fine.I have a script that as part of the setup it installs around 38 wireless profiles and its the same script that we use in all our models.On this model is causing a BSOD pointing to the "rtwlane.sys" file.  after some research I have downloaded the latest driver from Realtek.  This did not help.I added a pause command on the script so that the script pauses after each individual profile is installed to see if its one particular profile causing the issue.Each time that I run the script, the BSOD happens at a different profile.

A blue screen error (also called a stop error) can occur if a problem causes your PC to shut down or restart unexpectedly. When you experience this type of error, you won?t be able to see things like the Start menu or the taskbar on the screen when your PC is turned on. Instead you might see a blue screen with a message that your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart.
