    Default How do I change display according to what I'm doing?

    Hello Tweaktown,

    I have an NVIDIA GTX 280 connected to both a Samsung 20" LCD and an LG 32" LCD TV. My problem is as follows: I can't quite figure out how to make certain programs run on one monitor, while having other programs running on another.

    For example, I want Call of Duty to be displayed at my desk, but I would like DVD movies to play onto my TV (yes, I'm using my computer as a DVD and Blu-Ray player).

    Is there a simpler way than entering the NVIDIA control panel and changing which monitor is "primary?" This is not a long process but it becomes annoying, as I'm sure you could all imagine...

    I would greatly appreciate any help with this, and I'm sure this is the place to ask.

    Thanks in advance!

    I believe there are 3rd party programs to help you with this..
