Did this video help you?

noblsht: Does that require an additional graphics card? You need to be much more specific

Super Nova: poor thing :(

Keybraker: Both are bad i their unique way ...

Oliver Ansell: 0:09 - Mavericks, not Maverick. It's a place name, not an unorthodox or independent-minded person.

MrID36: Actually.

Nesti Gee: ok show us how to fix it not just talk about it!!! wow

fred steward: how do you change the prefreences 

Laurent Richer: Hi there, Is there a Thunderbolt Card that can be connected to the Mac Pro (year mid 2012)?

michael wheatley: get a tv a computer and a hdmi cable how hard is that people?

light yagami: why does this guy need a laptop when he has like a 6 monitor setup 

Richard Dale: Why on earth do you want or need six screens? other than to show them on YouTube. You can't possibly work efficiently on six screens. For me Mavericks fixes the main bug bear with a multi monitor set up. Not being able to display a wall paper across six screens isn't really a fair criticism IMO nor is not being able to stretch an app out of one screen. At the end of the day how many people have six screens?

Anduin Arilan: People who love this behavior clearly don't use 2+ screens. You can straw man this and say "Noone needs 6 screens" all you want, but designers like me used to gravitate towards OSX because of Expose+Spaces. Sure you will never need to stretch an application across 2 screens, but Full Screen disables my secondary and third screen at every turn making them unusable. Even with Mavericks!!!?! This isn't Full Screen, its Full Screen & Lose the Other Ones.

Benjamin Wheeler: I'd like to see Minecraft on that!

M.A.B. Beats: What year is your Mac Pro and which device are you using to get multiply screens?

Kadeem Booth: Dude. You can only use one computer at a time.. What are you doing that needs an iPad, iPad mini, MacBook Air(s) and a pro?! 

ray revalee: getting my new Mac in about a week, for me this multiple screen set up is pointless and such a costly waste of time. I would imagine the default setup which you dislike is the best since you'd be able to do some boring work on a couple of screens and have a movie going or browse the web on another etc… I see absolutely no advantage to having one application window expanded over multiple screens unless you're nearly blind and need to have one app stretched that huge. I could only imagine a 3 screen setup being needed.

Nick Goldston: thanks for the video, but how can I get it to go back to the mountain lion version of the spaces if i'm running mavericks? I just want my other screen to go black for gaming.

salehali Alkfesfec: Ok showing pros & cons! but why the freak on 4 screen ? 

Ed Sasena: how did you get back to the mountain lion style of multiple displays? you said you have to log out but what else do you have to do because I want to go back

Srdjan Milutinovic: how do you make this money

Matthew McKendrick: @ Dieter Rams This guy also uses 3 Dell displays so its not quite as expensive as you think.

Mono Shyguy: Are you an accountant...I mean I don't see the point of all those screens.

Raynal Reyes: mavericks is garbage

Michael Gonzales: So what do you use to make that many screens I can only do one screen with my one display port?

skinnymg1: You guys cried to have one thing fixed and when they do fix it, you cry about them changing something else. You would think that after all Apple goes through to give you what you want, you could at least show some gratitude. I personally like it the way it is now. I have no use for spanning across monitors, the break up that happens is more annoying than what you are bitching about. Not to mention the fact that they GAVE you that OS, they charged you nothing for it, yet you still complain. I understand why the hardware is so expensive now, with Apple trying to please you anal retentive pricks. 

ryan cincinnato: great video! I have one question for you. Do you find the text on the monitors blurry at all? I have a retina macbook pro and need more room so I purchased a 27 inch hp monitor, but the text is blurry compared the the macbook screen. I know it's retina and all but I seen the monitor in stores and it was beautiful compared to when i plugged it into my macbook via hdmi. any advice? seriously need help. Thanks Ryan

Adrian Bugnacki: Is that necessary 

ALFA 9 DELTA: Looool 3 apple display 3 dell display wat?

Rens Sterkens: first world problems...

Dayton Leong: What monitor mount did you use to put up the 6 screens

Brandon Hedrick: This guy is either a) just rolling in money or b) is a professional that works from home. I don't know which one it is but this set up is pretty sweet

asd1235569: All of it....How much?

Julius Burton: I use the old one

MrBartleby451: Amazing set up. Maybe its not working how you want it to because so few people have so many screens? They've just not thought about it. Must have cost a fortune, nice though.

yonatko: how did you set so many displays on iMac? i want to di the same but it allows only 1 connection

Seth Wieder: +MrThaiBox123 What hardware are you using to connect your monitors? Everything I see about DisplayLink drivers on OSX Mavericks looks buggy.

Eithel Agustin: Oh cool they added something that you can easyly do into a PC... Really mac this time im not buying it 

Fahad Shamim: Really nice setup.... got few queries.... How can you change the display settings to the old one??? I really hate the maverick display feature.... and how you connect 6 screens without making them lag at all???? Looking forward to have your reply 

Adam Genzink: In my case, I only use two screens, and even so, the new method would drive me crazy. As a video editor, I have one space for editing, one space for after effects, one space for photoshop, etc. Each "Space" uses both screens, and so when I switch to space four, I have photoshop on both screens, space five has Final Cut on both screens, and six has After effects on both screens. Now, while switching both screens individually might not be that much more of a burden, it would still be annoying. Beyond that, however, is the fact that it doesn't seem like you can easily drag a window from one screen to the other, which I do all the time in safari. I don't need to stretch the window across screens, but I do want to be able to open a new window and then drag it to the opposite screen. It seems that in order to do this, I would have to go to mission control, which in my experience has slowed down over time.

Vuvuzela: MrThaiBox123: If you want the old Lion style way of dealing with multiple displays in Mavericks, just go to Settings -> Mission Controls -> "Displays have separate spaces". Bam! I still think the Mavericks way of dealing with multiple monitors is a lot more functional than lion. Nice video btw!

Chance Williams: Why u would need 6 screens i have no idea, but what i do know is that it looks really cool and the bragging rights. But what i would like to also know is would it be better to get 1 huge monitor or 6 monitors or maybe even 2?

AngryPenguin27: Why would you want to stretch an app across monitors. That seems obnoxious. I don't see how Mission Control could intelligently express what is going on across spaces if things can stretch across them. This is a limitation that makes sense.

Dieter Rams: $6000... just for monitors! WHAT A WASTE! 

Chris Rothery: I've only recently come over to the mac in the last year but the old multiscreen handling was useless (full screen blanking out the other), and the new way is even worse (not being able to spread applications across multiple screens). What they need to do is separate screens from desktops and allow you to say "my macbook screen is desktop 1, the OTHER 2 monitors combined are desktop 2". In the 6 screen example, if they were all set to be parts of one big desktop, sending an app full screen would make it take up all of the screens, not just one. or you could have 2 in one desktop and 4 in another etc. 

Cory Sims: If you want to get one window across two or three screens go into system pref. > Mission Control > uncheck "displays have separate spaces" > restart your computer > Tadahhhh!

Federico Bergagna: how did u set that up? its awesome!

Buzz Kirk: mavericks is better imho.. they are only missing display specific expose which might come in a new update

John Kittrell: @ darshan You can accomplish it using 2 video cards. Get 2 Radeon 5770's. You'll need to use dual link dvi for the 2 mini display ports on each card ($99 each so this will run you $400 alone).

Adam Matthews: How the new Mac OSX 10.9 mavericks works with multiple screens

francescomm: While I don't care much about backgrounds, you pointed out there are many silly problems with the new layout. 1- can' stretch out of one monitor (large speadsheets anyone?photoshop details?) 2 - but you can move a window partially outside of a monitor, only to make the outside part disappear (including the resize area, ugh!) 3 - Multiple menus in every screen - maybe you wanted a screen without the f***ng menu on the way (video playback, full screen preview, or just not waste space x 6 times) 4 - The Dock: they totally forgot about it. Multiple menus but only one Dock? How to move it from one display to another? Bounce to the bottom of the screen with the mouse (try it! But forget the top monitors!) this is UGLY as HELL. If you bounce to the bottom of the wrong display you'll find the dock there and wonder what's happened..
