If you extend your desktop as described by Y0himba in his reply then Yes you can have a game displayed on one monitor and another window displayed on the other monitor.

If this is what you are trying to achieve then please follow the instructions below:
Right click on the background on your main monitor
  • If your 2 moniters are both shown in the window, then select 'Extend these displays' in the drop down 'Multiple Displays'
  • If not, then with both monitors switched on, select Detect, then repeat step 1;
  • If you want one specific monitor to display your menus etc then select that monitor at the top of the window and then click the seletion box marked 'Make this my main display'
Let me know if you need any more help.

It also depends on the game itself. The vast majority will lock your cursor to one screen, however there are a few odd ones that don't.
