If you have multiple monitors, you can modify some Skyrim settings to stretch the game across multiple monitors.
1. Step If you installed Skyrim via Steam, go to
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\skyrim\Skyrim – this path could be different depending on where exactly you installed Steam. If you do not have Steam, open up your Skyrim folder
2. Step Right-click on Skyrim.Prefs.ini and click on Open With, then select “notepad” or “notepad++”
3. Step Scroll down until you find [Display] then look for iSize H and iSize W
4. Step Replace the entries iSize with the size of your desktop. Simply multiply your current resolution e.g. with the number of your monitors e.g. 1920 x 3 = 5760
If you are using 3 monitors in portrait mode with the resolution 1440 x 900 then you would enter something like
Over at widescreengamingforum.com you can find a bunch of nice hacks to get it working, but it should work quite nicely without the hacks by now.
How comes this site shows up in google as the first result for “skyrim on 3 monitors”?
This is completely wrong, has it been tested yet?
1. It’s NOT the Skyrim.Prefs.ini in the install folder as shown here. Change the resolution there, causes NOTHING. It’s the Skyrim.Prefs.ini in Documents/My Games folder. One may need something to fix the menu and HUG though.
2. iSize H=5760, iSize W=1080 ???
Please don’t confuse height and width here… it’s more likely the other way round.
I think that should be changed in that article, even when this probably was possible in an earlier Skyrim version. (Point 2 was just wrong though…)
