The newest driver features stretched desktop mode to span applications across all displays, while introducing Desktop Zoom to view a pre-selected region on a dedicated feature display. PowerDesk 4.00 also includes Personalised divisions, a function under Desktop Divider that allows users to divide the desktop into smaller cells to create a customised and personalised desktop.

PowerDesk 4.00's stretched desktop mode and Desktop Zoom are valuable multi-display enhancements, especially for professionals operating high-end applications on Windows 7 workstations, comments Ron Berty, Business Development Manager, Matrox Graphics.
