Assuming you have the display set as extended then reduce the resolution in the game settings you will need to reduce the game setting if it on high as well.

This is exactly what I am doing right now. Playing Left 4 Dead 2 while I answer posts

Anyways, you HAVE to run the game in Windowed mode. No other way to do it.

in windowed mode i know that. But some of them might have or not and some of them windowed mode is weird.

So the only choice is to run them in windowed mode.

Thank you.

I'm using Ultra Mon, that gives you a taskbar on both monitors and several additional features.
