I am running a Dell Optiplex GX60 desktop, with Win XP SP3. I'm using my LCD tv as a 2nd monitor (I'd like to be able to watch YouTube vids, etc on it). The computer has 2 VGA outputs, an onboard and a PCI Nvidia card. I managed to get everything set up so that I have my desktop on the tv (wallpaper only, no icons) and the regular monitor, using the onboard vga output for the monitor and the Nvidia card for the tv. So far, so good.
So, here's where I'm running into a snag....
My regular monitor is configured as my primary display (because the tv and computer aren't side-by-side, they're separated by a wall and connected by a 10' vga to vga cable). I can drag an open window from the primary monitor onto the secondary, but......
How do I view a full-screen video on the secondary (or both) monitors?
For instance, if I'm watching a YouTube (or Windows Media Player) video on the primary monitor, how do I go about sending it to the tv full screen?
I'm hoping this is a simple procedure and I'm just missing something, but a google search was unfruitful.
I'd be perfectly happy if the entire desktop was just duplicated on both displays.
Thanks for any help.
