  3. Dual monitor Windows 8 help.
2 years ago#1
I was going through some stuff one night and I stumbled upon a monitor that my sister left behind when she moved. She doesn't want it anymore (she uses her HDTV as a PC monitor now), so I figure I could use it as a second monitor, since, while it's not the same monitor, it's the same size and resolution.

Anyway, I was hoping to use one monitor to browse the internet, while playing World of Warcraft on the other. I do everything I'm supposed to; set the monitors to extend, set WoW to fullscreen-windowed, everything. But when I start Google Chrome on the second monitor, instead of opening on the second monitor, it minimizes WoW on the first monitor and opens on the first monitor. Can anyone help me understand what I'm doing wrong? BTW, I am using Windows 8.1 64-bit Pro, so there's that. Thanks for any help.

Can't you just drag Chrome over to the second monitor?

I heard about that while searching around, yet haven't run into a tutorial on how to do that.

Hold the mouse button over the top of the window and move it to the right until it's on the second monitor.

Actually, I found a tutorial on my own with the answer, but I appreciate the help all the same. Thanks for the assistance. This whole two monitor thing just got a whole lot more interesting now.

I'm guessing he just didn't realize the two desktops were connected like that.
