How to record dual/multiple monitors

To record two or more monitors, you can either increase the size of the 'Rectangle on a screen' or you can open multiple instances of Bandicam.

1. How to record dual monitors by running multiple instances of Bandicam

If you copy and paste the Bandicam installation folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Bandicam) into "Windows Explorer", a "Bandicam - Copy" folder is created, and there will be a "bdcam.exe" in each Bandicam folder. If you click on the file, you can launch several Bandicam programs. This allows you to run two or more instances of Bandicam and record each monitor separately.
