I recently bought a 42" LED LG. I've got a pretty nice monitor. I have the HDMI cable and VGA cable hooked up. How do I go about having them on together but as different windows. Like if I wanted to drag a document or file or picture to the tv and have other windows open on my monitor.
I do alot of designing and my amount of window space is scarce! Thanks for the help.

What operating system are you running? Assuming Windows 7:
Right click your desktop and click Screen Resolution.
Click on either monitor and select "Extend these displays" in the Multiple Displays dropdown.
Click each screen and make sure the resolutions are correct (I'd suggest the max resolution for each display).

If you need more detail, just ask.
