Dual Monitors. - Page 2

It's pretty easy. CSS doesn't minimize unless you have it set in the game options at full screen. For duel screens you set it to "window" and then Ctrl/Alt to exit CSS and left click to enter. No problems at all. (other than reduced FPS)

Dual View, maybe I should try Horizontal? They are in the same res and everything anyway..
*tries that*

**EDIT: right my start menu.. I need it on my left screen, aka the computer monitor. So I guess that didn't work very well for me**

All of the above posts are correct. However, Windows is not as much at fault as the game manufacturers. Although I honestly wish that Microsoft had a Game mode for games...
post #18 of 18
I know you can do it in WoW, as I heal in raids while i watch podcasts

The setting in that is full screen mode on, windowed mode on, it windows the game but keeps it full screen, to my knowledge, only games that allow this will be suitable for dual monitor use
