Hi,

I have my trusted MBP and to my right my trusty 20" cinema display. All works thoroughly nicely thank you very much... just a couple of tweaks I need to know if I can do?

1. Can I set up app to start on the cinema display by default. They tend to start on my MBP display.
2. After I have moved an app over to the cinema display any prompts come up on the MBP display.

3. A little not related - I have a network disk which I conenct to on startup - how can I stop the finder displaying? I have ticked it in startup options to hide but it doesn't!

Thanks

Open System Preferences. Click the "Display" button. Choose "Arrangement" tab.

You should see two blue rectangles representing your displays. Atop the Macbook's representation, you'll see a white bar - drag that over to the Cinema Display. This makes your Cinema Display your default monitor.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.
