I’ve attached another monitor to my existing desktop computer using this: Plugable UGA-2K-A USB 2.0 to VGA/DVI/HDMI Adapter for Multiple Monitors up to 2048x1152. I just successfully installed the USB graphics software via Windows 7 Live Update. I was able to configure the display properties in WDP. I can mirror my existing desktop onto the second monitor. This is not what I want.
What I want is to extend my work space between the two monitors so that I can have several applications running on one monitor (email, chat room) and on the other monitor see websites and work in Excel and Word.
How do I move applications between the two displays? If I want to type in a chat room or answer email on my secondary display, how do I switch over to it from my main display? How do I switch back from it to my main display?
