Added a second monitor into my build and extended the desktop onto it. It works great but I am wondering, is their any way I can set one up so one does not affect the other.


EG. say I am playing a game in full screen and browsing the internet on the other (Yes I do this a lot) but whenever I click on the other monitor that is browsing the internet it minimizes the game on the other, any one have a clue how to remedy this?

Windows Vista Home Premium 32 Bit.

You have to run the game in windowed mode. Then when you tab out of the game it won't minimize.
