    So I just hooked up a second monitor to my computer to help with a little multi tasking. I have encountered 1 problem however. Is it possible to have the one monitor do something in full screen while still using the second monitor? For example lets say I have a video playing in full screen on one monitor but im doing some work on the other. If I click anywhere on the second monitor the video on the first monitor will exit full screen. Is there anyway to set it so it stays in full screen while allowing me to work on the second monitor.

    I read both articles but unless I missed something it didn't quite answer my question. The first article mainly just explained whats needed and the benefits. The second one showed how to set it up so its a extension of my main monitor but thats how its already set up. If it did mention how to get it working how I want it to and I just missed it I do apologize.
