I have done this many times in the past, but now I'm stumped.
I have hooked up a laptop to a monitor and either it sends the pic to the external monitor with the functions or it has the picture on both screens with the functionality on the external monitor.
I have now hooked up a laptop to an lcd monitor and the wireless mouse and keyboard have functionality on both screens. It's cool, but I wanted how things used to work in this instance only. I will probably love what's going on right now, in the future.
The cursor travels between screens seamlessly. I can drag a non maximized screen from one monitor to the other. I cannot just have the external monitor be "the" monitor.
This all comes about through an nview desktop manager. Like I said, I love this, but I just wanted to use the external monitor as "the" monitor and I have had this just happen automatically in the past.
I am trying to use the laptop as a tower. It used to be automatic.
