EasyWorship is designed for extended desktop display. That means you can have a monitor that contains only the control screen for EasyWorship and another monitor, like a projector or TV that displays the output for the audience, and, or the foldback content for people on the stage. 


Basic Hardware Requirements for Extended Desktop


  1. A single video card with two or three video outputs that supports two or three extended desktops. (NVIDIA GTX Video Card Recommended)
  2. A laptop with a video output connection. (VGA, DVI or HDMI) (NVIDIA GTX Video Card Recommended)


Enable Windows Extended Desktop


The first step in the process of setting up your screens for use with EasyWorship is to extend the Windows desktop to the screens you will be using.


  1. Open EasyWorship.
  2. Click on the Edit menu.
  3. Click Options.
  4. The Options dialog box appears.

  5. Select Live on the upper left.
  6. In the section titled Live Options, click the Monitor Setup button.
  7. EasyWorship will open the Display Settings window.

  8. Select monitor 2 or 3.
    NOTE: If you do not see more than one monitor box, your computer does not have dual monitor capability, or you do not have a projector or monitor plugged into the secondary video output on the computer.
  9. Select the Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor, Extend these displays or Extend to this display from the drop down list.
  10. Select the Resolution from the Resolution drop down box.
    NOTE: Usually using the recommended settings will work, but you may need to check documentation for your projector or TV to verify what resolution it supports.

  11. Now you need to set up EasyWorship to use the extended desktops you've enabled. To do this, follow the instructions below.

  3. Click Options.
  4. The Options dialog box appears.

  7. If you are using a third screen for foldback, click the foldback option on the left and select the output monitor you wish to use for foldback. 
  8. Click OK.
