I have the Connect 3D Radeon X1900XT. I was wondering if I run dual monitors and extended the desktop if I can play games on one monitor and do something else on the other? I tried doing this and found that all my games run full screen and either shut off the other monitor or leave it on and it shows the desktop but I cant get my mouse over there. Is there a way around this?

I think if I could force all programs to run windowed I could do this. But how do I prevent a program from running full screen when there is no option for it in the program?
