    I've just dug out my old crt monitor to have beside the tft. Plan is to use the old one for web surfing, other apps whilst playing games. I seem to have them setup correctly, however, to get something onto the second display i have to drag from the primary one over to it as there is no taskbar/desktop icons etc on the secondary.
    Is there a way to enable these on the secondary one so i dont have to Alt Tab while playing games then bring up web pages etc and drag them over? I'd like to just move the mouse to the secondary one and be able to bring the stuff up from there.

    Cheers.

    download ultramon mate. is the best multiple monitor software available. you can have seperate taskbar's and have icons on the menu bar of your window to put it onto a 2nd screen

    Cheers for the headsup, just installed it but it seems very very slow to respond. It did say something about compatability issues with windowblinds when installing, could that be why?

    I did have windowblinds and Ultramon, and I didnt have any problems. Might just be a certain version thats incompatible. Also I installed Ultramon then windowblinds, so that might have something to do with it.
