A Couple External Monitor Questions

    I have a MacBook Pro, 15", Intel Core 2 Duo. I run Windows Vista a lot via Boot Camp.

    I have an LG Flatron 22" external monitor hooked up via the DVI-VGA converter cable that came with the MacBook Pro.

    1. I am trying to use the "Extend My Monitor" so that my MacBook Pro becomes the secondary monitor. It is to the left of my external monitor as I face it. But, for the life of me, I can't figure out how to make moving the mouse and windows to the left from my external monitor to the MacBook Pro monitor work. I am only able to move things right -- which makes it a little bit unnatural. Anyway to change the direction?

    2. I can only get the screen saver to come on the external monitor. How can I also make it come on the MacBook Pro monitor?

    3. Does anyone see a display difference when going straight DVI-DVI instead of using the DVI-VGA adapter?

    Go to System Prefs then Displays, and there should be a tab called Arrangement. There you can drag the monitors around to extend it in any direction.

    Yeah, I think that is for Mac OS X. Thanks.

    I am looking to do this with Windows Vista though.
