First of all, Hello Everyone! I've been lurking around the forums here for a while now but never had a question...Until now.

What I'm trying to do is use my Dell 19" widescreen monitor as the main monitor for my laptop (where all active programs running are displayed) and use the laptop monitor exclusively for viewing my security cameras ( which is a Wi-Fi feed from I.E.11 through my modem/router) I am using the Dell monitor now for my active desktop but I am unable to figure out how to use the laptop display only for my other purpose, any thoughts or am I asking too much?

Thanks for the reply, I've fooled around with the different settings as suggested in the tutorials and it seems to be working with the exception of I.E. for some reason I.E. will only display on the main monitor whereas any other program opens automatically on the laptop monitor. Perhaps some further tweaking is in order.

***Update***

   After doing some additional reading/tweaking and tinkering I have discovered how to move my programs between monitors.

 

Thanks again to ElfBane for the help :warrior:
