So.. I finally got my MiniDVI and VGA cable I need to get my MB running with my TV for a dual desktop.

It looks great on my 32in. LCD and Im loving being able to have all this extra room to have stuff open...

Some annoying things I've noticed so far:

Theres no menu bar on my second desktop, so when I have any app open I have to go back to my MB desktop to do anything on the menu bar... (the dock would be nice to have on my TV too) If I make alias's and put them on my second screen will they still be there when I plug in the MB for some good browsin' next time?

When browsing in safari and I click a link that wants to open in a new window, and the new window will open on the MB screen (i have also noticed this happening vice versa)

so is there any way to fix some of these things? I've already been in Preferences-Displays and played around there...
QUOTE Thanks
