RE: dual monitors

Hi Pat,
I may have missed the boat here, but I think that you can't move the toolbars because the second monitor can only show what is on the monitor that is connected to the CPU. It would take having the program running on two computers, one displaying onto the screen the kids see and one just showing you what you want to see. I may be wrong; it's Friday and my brains are now like banana mush! ;-)

Subject: dual monitors

Are any of you comp. tech. people out there running more than one monitor
off of your cpu? With PC Windows 98 or later you can run up to 9 monitors
off of the cpu by adding an additional video card for each additional
monitor. As I have a spare monitor collecting dust at home, I'm considering
trying this. Found a compatible video card at CompUSA for $40.

When using Painter or Photoshop I find the menus constantly in the way of
attempts at creating anything. Would love to move all the menus over to a
second monitor. I think this would make things much easier for my students.

Any suggestions?
