    Hey ppl , i need help .

    i been using mbp for a year now (converted from windows, well not really but almost ).

    heres the prob;
    i use my mbp to show movies on the 2nd screen in full size with VLC.
    then the primary screens background image gets black (can still see the Dock and the programs running and so on...)
    then when i click on spotify the movie on the 2nd screen returns to normal size instead of full screen.its very irritating.

    I would like to use both screens, example to write a mail or use other program on 1st screen while i show a movie on the 2nd screen in full screen at the same time.

    is there any hint or program for this on Lion? or have i missed something?

    It's very annoying. i tried to google it but wo results.

    Open System Preferences, click Displays, and then click Arrangement.

    Google "osx multiple monitor desktop arrangement". Very simple to do.

    This is an app issue as well. Some apps will run in full screen on dedicated monitors. VMware is an example. Check to see if it has fullscreen (disable spaces full screen). This allows the app to over-ride spaces which puts the app full screen but greys out the other one.

    However, the newer version of OSX is suppose to fix this.
