View Full Version : Dual Monitor & Full Screen Quicktime.. FAIL?

Aug 1, 2011, 02:06 PM
Hey guys, need a little help, I upgraded to Lion on my Mackbook Pro which i have hooked up with a DELL 22" Monitor. Never had a problem before lion when watching video and going Full Screen on the DELL MONITOR..

Now With LION, whenever i watch a video on the DELL and go Full Screen it automatically brings it down to the Macbook Monitor.

Is there a way to keep it in the Dell?

In Lion apps only go full screen on the main display (the one with the menu bar and the Dock). You have to manually drag the menu bar to your Dell in System Preferences -> Displays -> Arrangement.

Didn't try; but could you just close the lid and avoid that the MBP goes to sleep ... That might switch over to the external screen.

i dont know for sure as i only have the one monitor but i do know that when you launch fall screen it make its own space, you could try going on the second monitor and selection the space that the fall screen is on if that helps.
