I have Windows 7 installed on my laptop, which is a Dell studio XPS 16. I recently set up a second monitor for it.
I've noticed that when I open up full screen applications, like a game or media center on one monitor, I can't seem to do anything with the other monitor.
With the game, I can see the other monitor, I can play a movie on it even, but if I click the mouse button on it, it'll stop the game and Alt+Tab away.
In Media Center, I can't even cross my mouse over the other monitor.
So my question is: in Windows 7, is it possible to run programs like this that are designed to be run in one maximized window and still be able to do things on the other window?
