    It may have been Manufacturer's Firmware from the PC or Monitor on your old rig.


    For best help we would need some additional details. Could you sign up for the site and reply in this thread?

    What was the make/model of your old rig? What OS and version?

    I was hoping for the manufacturer name of the old PC and Monitor. I am familiar with extending desktop across 2 monitors, but not extending it across multiple screens on only one monitor outside of Linux.

    That is not to say the info isn't out there, I'm just not able to put my hands on it.

    It may be this? https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/.../cc817881.aspx

    oh the monitor hasn't changed it's an asus mm17d
    you could think its 1280x1024,it is but when i set the res to 1920x1080 everything would seem like before, but it almost looked like you're scrolling to the left side but you arent actually, just move your mouse to the left ,and another part of the screen background would show

    That really sounds like some sort of firmware thing. It may have been part of the graphics drivers and management package on the old PC whether you had a 3rd party graphics card or an onboard GPU.

    Did you try the item I linked? It looks like the multiple desktop setup on Ubuntu.. A bit tame for eye candy, but nice for productivity.
