This morning I wanted to paste two maps on to my second screen for reference during a webinar I was giving on Four Crucial Tips for MindManager Users. They were my management map and the attendees. I looked hard for ways to paste them in various applications and then I went back to Windows Paint. Here is the simple process:
- Select central topic of map and copy CTRL-C
- Open Paint and paste.
- Drag the edge of the canvas so it will cover the required part of your desktop.
- Repeat with another map pasting on to the same image and arranging as appropriate.
- In Paint > File > Set as Desktop Background > Centred
Now I had these prompts on the desktop of the second monitor along with the web cam array and the GoTo Meeting Control Panel. In my primary monitor I was sharing MindManager. The image I created is below.
Do you have a better option?
Some of you may remember being able to have a clickable image map in a live Windows background in Windows 3.1!
