Lg Split Screen Software Mac Os
- I may have found an article that referred to the following link for the on screen controller https://www.lg.com/us/search.lg?search=on+screen+control
and downloaded the software from there and it worked. But it looks nothing like what you see on the videos and there are no instructions or guidance.
- Hello @LLeary
Here is what I recommend.
- Locate the OSC icon located on the task bar.
- Select the Screen Split layout desired.
- Thank you for the great SS but where would I find the OSC icon. I have tried and tried to download the driver but I am pretty sure it does not contain the split screen software. Sorry I am lost and perplexed
I have downloaded the updated driver, which is the only thing I can find to download, and still cannot get the split screen option on my 34UM61-P that I purchased from Costco. I am running Windows 7 but I cannot imagine that makes a difference. I also cannot find an OSC icon anywhere on my task bar or computer.
I purchased the monitor a few years back and know that I did not use the CD that it came with because I do not have a CD in my computer. I am not sure if the software was in that bit even if it was I would think I could find that software somewhere on the LG site but I cannot.
I would really appreciate any help....

I am not sure if this makes a difference but I am also using the LG ultrawide as a second monitor extended from my laptop.
I ended up calling support and found that the 34um61-p does not have onscreen control software or dual controller software to download. The tech told me to download any controller you can find that is for the same sized screen. He had me go to the software & driver for 34uc79g-b and it worked.
