Split a User Station

Liza Poggemeyer|Last Updated: 10/21/2016

Any MultiPoint Services station monitor that has a resolution greater than 1024x768 can be split into two stations using the Split station task on the Stations tab. The desktop that is present on the monitor at the time that the split occurs moves to the left half of the monitor, and a new station is created on the right half of the same monitor. The new station must be mapped to a keyboard, mouse, and USB hub to complete its creation. After a station is split, a user can log on to the left station while another user logs on to the right station.

Benefits of using a split-screen station may include:

  • Reducing cost and space by accommodating more students on a MultiPoint Services system

  • Allowing two students to collaborate together, side-by-side on a project

  • Allowing a teacher to demonstrate a procedure on one station while a student follows along on the other station

Note

When you split a station, the active session on the station is suspended. The user must log on to the station again to resume work after the split has occurred.

To split a station:

  1. In MultiPoint Manager, in station mode, click the Stations tab.

  2. In the Station column, click the name of the station you want to split.

  3. Under Stations Tasks, click Split station.

To return a split station to a single station:

  1. In MultiPoint Manager, in station mode, click the Stations tab.

  2. In the Station column, click the name of the station for which you want to end a split.

  3. Under Stations Tasks, click Unsplit station.
