Windows 7: Laptop screen = desktop, TV through HDMI = full screen game?

Laptop screen = desktop, TV through HDMI = full screen game?

I've been trying to get my games running at full screen on my TV via HDMI, which does work - but I also want to be able to have an internet window, or Skype windows etc open on my laptop screen at the same time, to continue chatting/surfing etc. Whenever I activate full screen mode in-game, the laptop screen just shows my wallpaper, with no option of showing other windows. Is there a way to do this?

Laptop is a HP Pavilion DV6.

this is generic, u'll have to 'tap out' the game to do this anyway, normally takes about 5-15 seconds to go back into full screen,

but the general setup issue with bill your monitor settings, check your display manager nvidia/ati
