    Multiple Monitor Support
    I am working on a laptop using the laptop screen and a seperate montior. I am running Win2000 which I updated from Win98.

    In Windows 98 I could toggle my f8 key and get my monitor screen on two monitors. The key was that the workspace was large and you could move say an internt page to one screen and say set a word page in the other.

    With Windows 2000 I am having problems getting this function. The toggle still works, but the workspace is different. Waht is in one screen is in the other. I have tested all the different screen settings and wnet through the help functions on the software to turn on the second monitor and make it primary or secondary. The problem is that you cannot set up one large workspace and have the windows in each screen sized to appear like two seperate work spaces.

    Several have commented that this problem was due to the montitor driver, but I don't think that is correct as the driver updates do not change anything. I have also called MS and tech support is no help what so ever. Does anyone have any thoughts.
