Getting multiple screens independent of each other

Post by phil.e » 2020/11/23 16:07:10

I've got a bunch of users with 3 head systems, running CentOS 7.8.

By default when CentOS installs, you can move windows between screens, and workspaces applies to all monitors at the same time

They want to have 3 independent screens - i.e. you can't move windows between monitors, and each screen has its own separate set of workspaces.

How do you get the independent screens? And what is that called?

It is called "extended desktop" when the desktop spans multiple monitors.
The opposite is "multiple displays". So searching for these words may help you find the solution.
