rig the two monitors up using the windows display settings - so one is next to the other and when your ready to go on your game just drag the stuff across to the second monitor

when a game plays in fullscreen mode, other monitors are disabled, unless the game specifically support multi monitor setups, such as a flight sim

your alternative is to run the game in windowed mode but size the window up to be about the size of one screen, then everything on the other monitor should still be viewable

The program i suggested in the other post allows for the Start menu on both screens.... You can run a game on one screen, but as soon as you have ur mouse on the other screen and click, counter strike minimizes...

Does your GPU support nVidia nView,Dual view,Clone view etc? You can set up a wide variety of possibilities. You can use the nView Display settings to set the #1 primary #2 secondary monitors opposite and in Dual View mode you can set up each monitors resolution, color, etc independent of each other etc. It takes some prctice working through all the settings possible tp get your desired goal. good luck

Great Program.. Allows you to strech a background onto the 2 monitors, or have each one a diff. picture..
