on my nvidia geforce 4 mx 440 in the display options i could designate the seondary display for fullscreen output of a video app such as a dvd player and still have my windows desktop visable on the first display how could this be done with my new ati 9600 pro ?

"yes..."

So helpful. ;)
I responded to thread title lol...

just drag application or move it using specific commands (depends if you are using hydravision or ultramon or if you are using generic winXP control panel)

then maximize the application... and there you are...

-edit-

btw teddy... I didn't see you dropping any pearls of wisdom :cool:

thank you ....but it short no there is no automatic way to just have the *fullscreen output only* be sent to the secondary display i would have to *do* something each time to make it happen unlike nvidias way of when u go fullscreen the video is sent to the second display leaving the first desktop still visable with no moving of windows at all. rite?

I don't follow?

you want the application you open to automatically open fullscreen on the 2nd screen ?

you should be able to setup the applications individually using either hydravision or ultramon...

both of these things give you the option either with right click menu or a toolbar option to send the app to the 2nd monitor...

if you are opening a dvd player or something on the 2nd display you should be able to configure it individually...

also.. are you running dual display all the time or once in a while ?

i only occasionaly use dual display .... and rite now im not using either hydravision or ultramon (which id never heard of before)
but ya i want when i tell the dvd app to goto fullscreen the fullscreen output to goto the 2nd display when active. nvidia does that within its own control panel

heh :D

I woulda been able to give you more info had I not already sold my other monitor...

sry m8... I am just giving you info from what i remember with my experiences..

I think a 3rd party app should be able to help you out or a little messing round with hydravision profiles...

beyond that I suggest you check out www.rage3d.com forums or wait for someone else who is currently using a dual monitor setup with an ati card...
