Hi,i recently attached a vga monitor to my ibook g4. I opened the display prefrences and the "arrangement" tab was there however i couldnt drag the windows. I restarted the ibook and re-opened the prefrences and the "arrangement" tab was no longer there, I want to extend the desktop onto the other monitor, is this possible?
QUOTE Thanks

The iBook only natively supports mirrored displays meaning the same thing is on both displays. There is however a software hack that will enable screen 'spanning.' Perhaps someone else in the forums can tell you the name of the hack or more specific info.

good luck.
