Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I usually dual monitor and have programs open on both. now that i am at home i do not have my second monitor only my laptop. when i go to open a certain program it opens on my "second monitor" that isnt there and i cant figure out how to move it to my desktop.


Answers :

You should go to the display properties on your laptop while at home and disable the dual monitor setting. You should then have all programs open on your laptop screen and not on the secondary monitor. If running XP, right click an open spot on desktop and select Properties. If running Vista, right click an open spot on desktop and select Personalize. Go to Display Settings, select the second monitor and uncheck "Extend the desktop onto this monitor". Hope this helps.
