I have 3 monitors running on Windows 7. according to windows monitor numbers
- Samsung TV(in another room connected via HDMI)
- My main Samsung LCD DVI1
- Secondary 17" monitor DVI2
#2 is the only one that's always on. it is set as my main display.
In monitor settings I go in and extend desktop to the TV or my other monitor; whenever I do this, all my applications pop over from #2 to the newly added monitor, whether it's the TV or the 17". This is really annoying especially in the case of the TV because it's in a different room and I can't see the windows anymore. The Winkey+Shit+rightarrow shortcut is nice, but still a pain and doesn't always work (esp w/ programs that have floating toolbars that get moved over but don't always come back)
I'd just mirror my monitor on the TV except they're different resolutions and my main monitor looks dumb getting scaled down to 1920x1200.
Is there any way to stop this from happening?
Any external monitor/sound handling situation that makes things generally more straightforward would be welcome as well (especially if it can easily handle switching my audio output-- right now I have a hsortcut set up with autohotkey).
