I am having an issue where when I am playing a game, I move my cursor to the left and it goes off my external monitor.

When I am in mirrored mode, my external monitor's resolution is downgraded to the same as the MBP and I can not change it.

I was wondering how I can make make my MacBook Pro monitor not be used as a monitor while I have an external monitor plugged in.


Or if someone has a solution to my problem, it would be great.

Thanks

You need to operate your MBP in "clamshell" mode. See the following Apple KB article: LINK
