How do i set up a second display for my iMac desktop?  I want to use both displays at the same time.

how do i set up a second display for my iMac desktop?  I want to use both displays at the same time.  My iMac is the 24" Late 2006 model.  I recall that there is a cord for plugging in a second monitor, but I want to make sure that i can use both monitors side-by-side at the same time.  thank you.

If the Display supports DVI, then you will need a > Mini-DVI to DVI Adapter and a DVI cable.
If the Display only supports VGA, then you wiil need a > Mini DVI to VGA Adapter and a VGA cable.
Noting that the (digital) DVI is far better than the (analog) VGA connection.

  • I'm using same icloud and same apple ID on two iphones. Now i get calls from same number on both iphones at the same time. How to turn off that?

    I'm using same icloud and same apple ID on two iphones. Now i get calls from same number on both iphones at the same time. How to turn off that?

    Apple ID's are not device specific, so when you changed it on the iPad 2 it changed it on the iPhone 4 as well, since it's the same account still. What you need to do is create a second Apple ID (so you'll have two accounts, one for iPhone 4 and a seperate one for iPad 2).
    To create a new Apple ID on your iPad 2:
    1) Go into Settings > Store.
    2) If you are already signed in, tap your Apple ID on the screen and you will be given a few options, one of which is to sign out of your account.
    3) After you sign out, now click the "Sign in" button.
    4) Tap "Create New Apple ID" and follow the instructions on-screen.

  • How to use multiple languages at the same time for spell checking?

    I use two different languages all the time and words are mostly so different (English and Finnish) that I could have spell checking on for both languages at the same time.
    Now it seem to allow to select only one language at the time and I have to switch back and fort zillion of times per day.

    Thanks for the quick answer.
    The Dictionary Switcher doesn't seem to work with Finnish language, it doesn't detect it at all to be one of the choices although in the Firefox context menu Languages -> Finnish/Finland is shown.
    Also, if it would work, I would need to get rid of multiple EN_* langauges. I just need EN_UK or EN_US, not all 22 different EN_*.
    One option would be to create a custom dictionary, which would have words from both languages. The next task is then to find out how to make this kind of custom ENFI-dictionary, which would have words from both English and Finnish languages.
    Finnish may be a some kind of special case for spell checking anyway, because the support is in its separate plugin:

    I want each port connect to the net can both read and write;
    I want to apply the function like this:
    1.config the port1 and port2
    2,open port1 and port2
    But after I open port1 or port2 the other port can't be opened;
    After I open the second port it always returns negative.
    In the codes I use CAN0 and CAN1 as the CAN objects.

  • Same Mac, connecting to two different networks, one by Ethernet, one by Wi-Fi. How to see both networks at the same time?

    On this Mac, I have access to the company network (and Internet) via the Ethernet port (gateway
    At the same time, I have a second (backup) Internet link via Wi-Fi, to a different ISP (gateway
    At the least, I would like to view the company network from the Finder AND access Internet via the Wi-Fi link.
    I have minimal knowledge of network stuff, but if I could redirect the browser requests to the Wi-Fi link, maybe it would work?
    Thanks for your help!

    Oh well... just found the reply...
    Changing order of the connections, putting the Wi-Fi first as it gets the HTTP first.
    Don't know why, but it would not work yesterday!

  • I have two iphones a 3g and 4 and I get problems when I attach the phones ot the  computer as  the date seem to be transferred form one phone tothe other how could I continue to use both phones on the same computer without getting confused

    When people complain about an echo, that's what they are talking about.  The echo problem is mostly heard with the caller on the other end. 
    I have had the situation happen to me and when I unplug the headset the echo goes away and when I plug it back in the echo returns.
    I think this problem is much larger than it seems because unless the person on the other end complains about the echo you can't always tell it is happening.

  • How can I display a avi-file while acquiring data from a DAQ-CARD at the same time

    While my system is acquiring analog data and controlling a motor, I want to display a avi-film (preferably in full-screen, so that the LabView GUI disapears during this process). Are there any VI's to open external players? May I face some problems to lose samples, due to the calling of external players?

  • How do I delete Vertical color stripes (pink-red-green) on desktop screen - 6 of them. Anybody have the same problem? Other Mac groups have same problem.

    How do I delete vertical color stripes on my destop screen. There are 6 of them in pink, red and green. Can't believe I'm having problems with my wonderful iMac!

    Unfortunately, they aren't something to be "deleted." Might be a hardware/graphics chip problem. You should run the Hardware Test in Extended. Might have to run it several times to pick up an error.

  • If I have a folder within a folder how can I keep both open at the same time?

    I now have IOS 10.10.1 on my iMac and can no longer open a file within a file and have the main file remain open along with the inner file. I used to be able to do this in Lion.

    I don't know if this is what your looking for but here you go.
    To make it so that when you double click a folder it opens in a new window you have to turn off or hide the toolbar. To do so:
    Open a Finder window > Select "View" from the menubar > select "Hide Toolbar"
    Keyboard shortcut to do the same as above is ( Command ) (  Option ) ( T )
    Now every folder you double click on will open in a new window.
    It should remember that you elected to not have the Toolbar show and every time you open a new window it will be the same.
    To change back Do the same except instead of "Hide Toolbar" it will say "Show Toolbar"
    Hope that helps,

  • HT201471 How can I use 2 apps at the same time?

    Is it possible to use two (2) applications at once. Ie; Internet instructional video &amp; a book app to follow along?

    You can only have one app open on-screen at a time, but if the other app is 'recently used' then you should be able to double-click the home button to open the taskbar at the bottom of the screen and you can then tap that other app to switch into it.

  • JDev9i-Beta;How could I run two JSP applications in Jdev enviroment at the same time?

    I have two JSP applications located on different directories. I wanted to run both applications at the same time in Jdev enviroment. But the second one failed.
    More info:
    I successfully ran Application1, then minimized the browser and ran Application2, then again minimized the second browser. After I maximized the first browser(Application1) and tried to go thro pages, I received page not found. Because Jdev sat up the Class Path for the newer application(Application2) and looks for pages there. I believe thats why I could not run both at the same time. How could I get around of this?

    can you provide more details on this. Are these jsp files part of the same project or different projects. I can not duplicate this issue. Please provide us more information.
    Thank you
