Description: Multiscreens is a early-access program that lets you have as many screens as you want in VR. Specifically, each program is its own screen and can be moved around as desired.

Right now you can:

– Change the target framerate of each window captured
– Play multiple videos simultaneously (just make sure if you are in chrome to disable Hardware Acceleration in advanced settings) while playing a game
– Turn on supersampling
– Control everything with your mouse which leaves your keyboard and controller free for typical use (there is also a mouse sensitivity setting)
– Move windows freely in a 3D space around you and make them bigger or smaller as desired
– Capture right click menus and other context menus

Review: There might have been a time years ago when Multiscreens was a good app with some real potential. It was made at a time when people tried to figure out what to do with VR (and at time of writing this they still are), but these days when compared to many other multiscreen PC virtual workstation apps this one is pretty pale in comparison. Yes, it works fine, but the price is simply not even close to being acceptable. Maybe it was just too ahead of its time, but whatever the reason this app looks so bad now you should still stay clear of it.
