Q & A

Q1: Why the UI of 2nd panel is abnormal?

A1: Because of the behavior of Windows 11, version 22H2 changed, it caused 'Active signal mode' to be changed. If a user changes ScreenPad resolution, it will show a black screen on the ScreenPad. You can choose the following either to solve this issue.


Q2: Why the UI of ScreenXpert App Switcher and Microsoft Snap layouts overlapping?

A2: When a user drags the application window, it will show Snap layouts from the top of the screen. This is Microsoft Windows 11, version 22H2 new feature. The pop-up UI will overlap with ScreenXpert App Switcher.

You could turn off snap layouts function form Windows Settings > System > Multitasking > Snap window and uncheck "Show snap layouts when I drag a window to the top of my screen".


Q3: Why the Start menu will show up together when I swipe up from the ScreenPad bottom to call the navigation bar?

A3: ASUS change the ScreenXpert swiping up gesture to clicking an arrow icon for showing the navigation bar. Please update ScreenXpert App to V3.0.7.0 or the latest version, then get a better experience.
