Windows 7: WMC for photo show on dual screen (not second screen use possible?)

WMC for photo show on dual screen (not second screen use possible?)

I found out, that WMC photo slide show is real nice cause it uses the Kent Burn effect (this discreet motion of the pictures).
But I have one problem with it.
Using it on a dual screen system (Notebook screen & beamer) when I start the show on the second screen (beamer) I canít get back on screen one with the mouse and work there to prepare some other thinks.

Is there a way to archive that?
Playing the photos slide show and using the first screen ?

I watch quite often tv fullscreen in WMC on screen two, while doig something else on screen one. To "free" mouse from full screen WMC, I simply click the Windows key on my keyboard and move the pointer over to screen 1.

Works nicely.

How configure the GUI that way ...
to keep the Programm-Icons there and seperate the running programms. (also at the same time)

To start, I have tasbar located on the left, small icons, never combine:

Then, I have enabled Quick Launch toolbar (Quick Launch - Enable or Disable). You can change the Quick Launch visual appearance as you like, in my case I use big icons and have disabled both Show Title, which would show the title Quick Launch on that toolbar, and then disable Show Text, which would show the name of each program in Quick Launch. To change these settings, right click an empty spot in Quick Launch to open context menu. Notice that taskbar must be unlocked to open Quick Launch context menu:

This image shows better what those options Show title and Show Text would do:

That's it. Looks good, is very practical and makes opening applications and controlling what is open really easy.
