Dual screen: One desktop, one not. How to do ?


R

R.Wieser

Hello All,

I would like to attach a second screen to my 'puter, but do not want to
stretch my desktop to that second screen (one is a monitor, the other is a
TV screen). How would I do that ?

I've googled for it, but did not see much but for the two-screen, single
desktop configuration. What I (think I) need is two seperate desktops, each
on their own monitor.

I'm asking this because I do not want to run the chance that an app by
accident gets started on the space of the second monitor (the TV screen),
which at that time could off or be occupied otherwise.

In short: Is there a manual available that describes how to do that (and how
to switch between those two seperate screens/desktops)

Regards,
Rudy Wieser

This un-named TV screen (as you call it), what forms of Video Input does it have ?

David,
This un-named TV screen (as you call it), what forms of Video Input does
it have ?

Standard SVGA connection, just as my primary monitor. It ofcourse also has
chinch and scart too, but those are not compatible with my videocard :)

How come you ask ?

Regards,
