    New windows on dual screen monitor setup
    Hello,

    I am new to mac forums, and I have been confronted with a new problem, while solving another.

    I bought a second monitor to have more real estate. This is good.

    But, I have come upon an inconvenience in this new set up:

    I might be able to use the second screen to put a piece of software like mail, but each time I click something that mightopen a new window, the new window always opens up in the first, or primary screen.

    Can someone explain to me how to have a new window open on the same screen where the original window is?

    I am using a dual monitor set up where the second screen is an extension of the main screen.

    Thanks!

    I tried your idea.

    It does work for opening the program on the same screen.

    But, when it comes to opening a new window for the program, it still always opens on the main screen.

    This might make a difference: I have an iMac, so the "main" one seems to be th eone in the iMac.

    Could this affect things?
