Default Re: help with my monitors

I have an 8500... Last time I tried doing this, I just clicked on the 2nd monitor on display settings and changed the res to whatever I wanted. I, however, didn't have any taskbar or anything on my other screen, but I could drag things over there...

Now I DID have a taskbar over there if I just mirrored the screen. That's how I normally work, then in theater mode so I can watch movies on my TV and such... An idea ATi stole for me...long story.
