    Mac to Monitor
    Hi,
    I'm trying to hook up my Macbook to my monitor in order to watch a stream on the bigger display. It is connected via a VGA cable but all i get to see is my basic screen saver rather than the safari window i want to!
    any help would be massively appreciated!
    Thanks

    Let me see if I have this correct: You are seeing a picture on both screens correct (Safari on one, screensaver on the other). If so, you can just drag the Safari window over to the other screen.

    If you will be using two screens quite a bit there are some things you can do to make things easier. ATPM 14.12 - How To: Taming the Two-headed Monster: Using Two Monitors With Your Mac
