This is a problem with Windows 10 in general - vast areas of empty white space on a PC because it has a widescreen monitor which a mobile phone doesn't. Metro tiles which may make sense for a touch device but are just awful for a PC. Calling everything "apps" instead of programs (a bugbear of mine). And IMHO a terrible visual refresh that sucks all the colour out of the icons and replaces them with monochrome line art (icons are white-on-blue or white-on-red or white-on-green, settings screen icons are blue-on-white or blue-on-grey, etc.)

How anyone can call this an improvement on windows 7's UI I don't know.

Bullshit. You don't get "harassed" on the internet, you learn to deal with criticism and sometimes insults. "Harassment" is about people causing you issues in REAL LIFE, stopping you doing REAL LIFE stuff, not text on the internet.

I had to learn this lesson within 5 minutes of joining various online communities. I learned it. I did not make everything about me and my feels. Then again, we didn't have Tumblr back then.

OK well I've gotten it working quite well now. It's slightly annoying because if it continues presenting the video channel, my dual-screen PC or extended laptop won't drop out of 2 screen mode even when I'm not displaying one of those screens anymore. However I can quite quickly just tell windows to switch to one screen with a couple of "Win+P" keyboard presses.

I've also gotten USB to switch nicely between the different PCs, by *not* using the designated "keyboard" and "mouse" ports on the switch, but just by plugging them in to the "regular" USB ports which can be switched separately (the designated keyboard and mouse ports are undesirably switched with monitor1 and strangely they don't even seem to work properly). The PC rediscovers the USB keyboard and mouse each time I switch but it seems to work pretty well and quickly.

OK just FYI everyone, I went ahead and bought a CM0264 and... it doesn't disconnect the inputs of the video channels that aren't currently selected. So basically it's the same thing as plugging the video cables directly into monitors with multiple inputs. Not such a great recommendation there.
