I just recently set up a dual monitor set up. It works fine but I don't like it when I move to the other monitor to select something, the full screen program on the other is minimized. I'd like a way to move from 1 monitor to the other without having a full screen program minimized. Is there a program or application that could do this? I'd like to know.

Thanks.

this is largely dependent on your video card and video drivers. What video card are you using?

i use MultiMon taskbar (listed as MMTaskbar PRO)...it gives you a second taskbar (with a clock) on your second monitor....but it also puts a little arrow button next to the minimize/maximize buttons in the top corner of each program's title bar....if you click that it shifts the program to the other monitor in the same state that it's in when you open it....of course this only works for things with title bars

I'd like a way to move from 1 monitor to the other without having a full screen program minimized.

I've only seen a few programs that actually support this. Selecting the other desktop is the same as selecting something on your actual desktop. It puts focus on something else thus minimizing the application.

I use UltraMon for my dual-screen setup needs.
