Dual Display Question.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if you guys could help me setup my dual monitors so I could play a game on 1, and surf the net on the other.

I have read some others posts on this subject, and people say they have done it.

Any idea on how to accomplish this?

I believe you have to play the game windowed, but I'm not absolutely sure on that.

if you want to play the game AND surf at the same time, you'll need to run the game windowed... What game is it?

Yeah, you must make the game windowed and drag it one display. Then have IE / Mozilla open in the other display.
