Hello, I have 2 monitors and I setup dual display. Anyone know how to get a game to stay on screen but in a none active window, so that I can surf the net, but still being able to see my game running?

the game has to support dual monitors. other wise it just treats it like an alt-tab (used to switch between programs). this results in your current dilema.

The main game I wanted to use it for was WoW, and I was lucky enough to find a option in game that allows it to run in windowed mode. This means I can just move my mouse off the WoW display and cruise onto my desktop without alt+tab :whistling:. Even when WoW isn't the active window I can still see all things happening (spells, chat msgs, all the action) I just cant hear the sound when its noactive, which does really bother me.
