OK, Platinum PPC, you're on!!!

by Ray Harinec - 5/18/05 2:05 PM

Got my LCD monitor and it's using the dual analog card that I have had in for some time.

It's a Jaton dual using Nvidia MX 4000 [turns out that the digital I bought is a FX 5200, but no hurry to put that in].

What I want to do, when in the forums, example hardware forum. I always open a thread with a new window. My aim is have the basic forum page stay on the left monitor and have the new window always show on the right monitor.

I'm also going to ask Toni H. to look here. She has a way to make the new window the same size as the regular window [which I am using]. Wondering If by repeating her process and also relocating the window will hold. I just forgot the first step of the process.

Using XP Pro, both monitors at 1280 X 1024. 17 inch CRT and 17 inch LCD. Obviously the CRT screen is really only about 16 inch [diagonal].

If I remember the Nvidia card allowed for a couple modes, but I got confused about which mode did what with respect to what I want to do.

Running Win XP pro.

I thought I remember an option where you could cascade windows or some such thing. I can't seem to find that in XP.
