i have a dual monitor system set up at home, with my widescreen setup using the dvi output, and the 19"lcd using the analogue. my dvi is set up as my main monitor, but in windows, they are identified as widescreen monitor is 2, and lcd is 1. when fx home loads up, it loads onto the 19" lcd, or #1 but i would like it to load onto the widescreen. i noticed there is no minimize handles to move the program around. is there a way to do what i am trying to do?

Reverse the monitors in the desktop/properties dialogue. Assign the widescreen to 1 and the 19" to 2.

Sorry, Bret. I guess I should elaborate a bit. Click on Start, then Control Panel, then on Monitors/Screens or whatever icon your "Display Settings" is listed under. There you can assign whichever monitor you wish to whichever position you wish. So assign the widescreen to #1 and the 19" to #2. Then your programs will all start on the widescreen.
