Specialized Displays in Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Pro for Workstations
If you are running the Windows 10 Enterprise or the Windows 10 Pro for Workstations editions, you may have noticed a new feature under Settings > System > Display > “Advanced display settings” > “Remove display from desktop” that allows you to use your monitor as a Specialized Display. A monitor is categorized as “specialized” if it is neither intended to be used as a “desktop” monitor nor as a head-mounted display.
The Specialized Display feature enables a display to be dedicated to a specific purpose, such as:
- Fixed-function arcade/gaming rigs like cockpit/driving/flight/military simulators
- Medical imaging devices that have custom panels (e.g. grayscale X-ray displays)
- Dedicated video monitoring scenarios (e.g. Avid Pro)
- Monitor panel testing and validation (e.g. in the factory)
- Video walls
