I have a mid 2010 13" MBP and I am currently using a Dell IN1920 18.5-inch HD Widescreen Monitor as a second display. I was just wondering if 1) there are any keyboard shortcuts to move a window from one screen to the other and 2) is there anyway to run applications on the Dell monitor (like a game that runs full screen)?

Thanks

I don't think there is a keyboard shortcut but generally once you move a window to the second screen it will appear there the next time it is opened if the second monitor is on. Mail, for example, always opens on a second screen.

The game should be able to open full screen on the Dell. Does this game need to run on the primary monitor. If so, make sure the Dell is designated as the primary monitor. T=You can do that from the Displays preference pane. Click the arrangement tab and drag the small white monitor bar icon to the Dell screen.

You're welcome. I am always a little reluctant to recommend my own writing but I knew if I explained it off the top of my head I would forget something.
