    Replaced my MacBook with an Air and want to setup with my 21 inch display. Right now I have main screen (with all icons) on my air and my mail on the 21" screen. How do I reverse them so my mail is on Air and main screen on 21" display?

    Open the Displays preference pane in the System Preferences control panel.

    In the Display preference pane, drag the white menu bar from the MacBook Air display to that of the 21" monitor. You may have to manually drag your Mail window to the MacBook Air screen.

    For further information, please consult the Apple support document:

    Click open and read the section toward the bottom called "Arranging your displays."
