    I just setup my 2nd monitor and when I go full screen in either monitor it makes the other a solid greyish color.. is there any way to go full screen in an app without this happening?

    Thats odd. Because the last time i saw that happen was in Mountain lion and Lion.

    You using Mavericks?

    Mavericks turns the second monitor gray in fullscreen, when System Preferences>Mission Control>Displays have seperate spaces checkbox is not ticked.

    It needs to be checked not unchecked.

    "Displays have separate Spaces"
    Checked = 10.9 style
    UnCheck = 10.8 style

    Nope Apple doesn't have a setting that caters to your needs sorry.

    Although I'm not 100% sure what you're even after because the menubar doesn't show in fullscreen and neither does the dock unless you bring it up.
