Windows 7: Can I use dual monitors independent of each other?

Can I use dual monitors independent of each other?

I am aware of Ultramon and Display Fusion but what I want to do is this. I'm gaming on Monitor 1 (main) in full screen. I have other programs active on Mon 2 but if I click on anything there, the game will minimize on Mon 1. This is what I would like to avoid.

Thanks for any and all help, Ken

Unfortunately not Ken.

The only way to avoid that would be to run the game in Windowed mode which is less than a stellar workaround.

Thanks Smarty. That's what I suspected but thought I would ask anyway. I may just stop researching my problems and come here for a quick answer. This forum is great!

I do have three monitors, dual on gaming computer and the other on a backup computer, so I guess I have it covered, lol.

Most games now days support full screen windowed to accomplish this, other than that there is no way to my knowledge.
