I bought a Dell monitor and have mirrored my MacBook to it. The resolution displays showing for the Dell monitor is 1600x900 and the MacBook is 1280x800 but the display on the Dell isn't taking up the entire screen size. I want to utilize the Dell widescreen, but when I don't mirror and put them side by side and move the files across, I don't know how to move the dock across. Can anyone help me?

system preferences>displays>arrangement>grab the dock from the image in the preference pane and move it over. you can also move the screens to different sides and center it etc...

i am not in front of my second monitor to take a screen shot so if that doesnt make sense i can post some pics in the AM
