My onboard GPU (which I'm using) supports my config., which is viewsonic led monitor hooked up with vga, and my samsung tv hdmi out of pc to tv.
Set it to extended mode in the Windows display properties which you have already done,

Yes, I mean wallpaper. I can get the wallpaper to show up on the TV now, and my desktop on my pc monitor, (monitor being primary, but labeled #2) so how do I get a useful workable image or whatever it may be, on the TV with the motionless wallpaper?
If it wasn't in extended mode you would either get an exact copy of the desktop (known as clone or duplicate mode), or you would have a blank screen because the second display isn't enabled.
it is in extended mode. how am i supposed to drag and drop something, into the tv window. where is this tv window?

oh SH*&

If i take my mouse and go way right on my desktop, it slides off pc screen, onto TV screen. Uh, is this just my system, or the way it is set up? Sorta wondering why someone didn't tell me this, or i suppose i should have known...

Ok, I drug and dropped vlc over there and that is fine. When I x outta that, it goes away. Can't i put a task bar tv, or set up a list of regulary used icons?

Windows doesn't have the ability to add a taskbar to a second monitor. As I mentioned earlier you have to use a 3rd party app like Realtime Soft UltraMon or DisplayFusion: Multi-Monitor Taskbar, Multi-Monitor Screen Savers, HotKeys, Multi-Monitor Wallpaper, Windows Logon Changer and more... to be able to do that,
