Hello everyone, Title pretty much says it all. I like to watch people stream stuff on justin.tv and watch movies while i play my games or watch videos while i'm typing in Microsoft word. I currently use a 20" at 1680x1050 for my games, and a (i think its 17") at 1280x1024 for watching movies, videos and browsing the web while i do other things. I have the 17" setup as an extended dispay. So, is there a way to watch full screen video on one screen while i do stuff on the other? Thank you for reading!

Thanks for the reply.

However, it didn't entirely answer my question.

I would like to know how to be able to watch full screen n the 17".

every time i open something in full screen on the 17" and then click on something on the 20" the video then goes back to its default size, its not full screen anymore.

How can i fix this?
