    Can you use Parallels on a 2nd monitor?
    I use Parallels on my system to run Windows. Someone was telling me that you can set it up so that Parallels runs on a 2nd monitor keeping your main laptop monitor OS X. Is is true I can hook a monitor into the video out and set it up so that Parallels runs Windows on this 2nd monitor?

    I have no idea the answer to your question, but if the answer is "no," then it'd be a really awesome suggestion to make for the next release of Parallels.

    Hopefully we wont lose track of this idea...

    Just drag the Parallels window to the second monitor and maximize it.

    I judge you when you use poor grammar.

    Yes, that's how I run windows. Drag the parallels window to the second screen. After starting windows, select full screen mode.
