a while ago i posted a problem with programmes misbehaving on a dual monitor setup. despite some helpful answers i was unable to resolve the problems. So i gathered the penies together and replaced the 2 15" screens with a single 24". when i later ran certain programmes and selected options displaying a dialogue box, the box was not on screen. Yet hitting the enter key usually returned control to the prog, thus proving it was being displayed. Then i remembered that i often dragged dialogue boxes to my second screen if i needed to see the prog behind it. Re-plugging a second monitor and setting it as before showed the dialogue box off to the phantom screen. I spent a lot of time correcting previous dialogue box moves before i had all progs running correctly. So be warned if you try the same move and find you have lost dialogues.
I have three (26") screens on my Vista64 setup. I can switch off two and the icons are not displayed on the middle (ex desk) - thats how i like it. If you only want one screen set the system as single screen. I may use diff programs to you but the only problem i have experienced with multi screens is some programs use diff resolutions to my normal set up and they over ride my resolutions. Now you have a larger screen for the main/middle - why not use the others as well?
