    Hey guys, today i bought a new 3d LCD monitor for my laptop. My laptop screen is 21" and my other monitor i bought is 42". My problem is that the wallpaper isn't correct, its been cropped (its not the full image just partial amount of it). However if i open up a window and maximize it, its the proper size. Also, how can i spread the taskbar, at the moment its only on the main window. I can do this with Desktop Fusion, but its dodgy.. Is there a feature in Windows 7 to change it?

    Many thanks!

    There are no 21" laptops or 42" monitors, and you bumped your post in the middle of the night after 10 minutes.

    You must have a desktop, and you bought a TV to use a display. The resolutions available will vary by TV. Check the manual.

    UltraMon is one of the best multi-monitor tools.

    Acer is a brand. I don't know of any 21" laptop. I'd like to see picture of it.

    Acer does indeed make 21.5" lcd monitors. But according to ACER the largest laptops they have are 18.4"
