Windows 7: Dual Monitor question (hard to phrase)

22 Feb 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate N 64-bit

i have the same issue, like to use both my screens. generally i just use window mode, but i tend just to alt+tab my windows and just switch just takes around 3-4 seconds to kick back in when i switch back to my game.

its full screen so u cant use another app with a fullscreen going off.

but a general good program for dual screen monitors is UltraMon
