Windows 7: How to play fullscreen game on 2nd (not desktop) monitor/tv

How to play fullscreen game on 2nd (not desktop) monitor/tv


Since yesterday i have a nice new Sony TV, which i connected to my laptop by HDMI. Every time i want to play a game (for example Fifa), the game starts on my laptop and not on my TV. I can only play it on my TV if i clone my laptop and tv. Isn't there an option "start on TV" or something in Windows 7?

Thanks for your help, Andy
