Windows 7: Duel Screens using MediaCenter in Full Screen, How to use both screens

Duel Screens using MediaCenter in Full Screen, How to use both screens

I use 2 screens with my system. I also, use media center a lot. Usually, when you put media center in full screen mode, you can only use the one monitor. Now sometimes I can use both screens at the same time, even though media center is in full screen. How can I make that permanent? I'm actually watching media center in full screen on my second monitor and typing this on my browser in my main monitor. My remote still works while I am using this too! I would love to make this permanent! Anyone even know what I am talking about? I'm having a hard time explaining it. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advanced! -Kevin

I found that if you resize the media centre to just be the monitor size but not fully open on the monitor. You can then use the other monitor

I found a way, you'll kick yourself when I tell you....

Put Media Center in full screen on which ever monitor, then Press the 'Windows Key' to move the cursor off that screen!!

Its not perfect but it will do!!

I had been using media center without using the full screen feature to use both screens at the same time. I am now kicking myself, as I described before, I was able to have media center full screened and use the other screen "sometimes". Now that Anthony has pointed out the trick, I now realize, that is what I had accidentally been doing when this happened. Thank you very much Anthony. Consider this problem solved! "]
