    I just hooked up a Dell monitor to my Macbook. I will be using it in clamshell mode 98% of the time, but I would like to know how to do the following:

    1) I have the MB on the RIGHT side of the monitor. I want to drag applications back and forth between screens. Currently, I have to drag off the left side of the external. How do I drag off the right side of the external and onto the left of the MB? I don't want the MB on the left of the external on my desk. Make sense?

    2) When using both screens, how do I get the dock on my external rather than on the MB?

    I Googled and searched the forums but couldn't find a reference to these problems.

    under displays on system preferences, click arrangement

    from there you can rearrange where the displays are in reference to each other, and by dragging the little white menu bar, you can change where that is too.

    Thanks, that worked. One more thing. I don't have any reason to install the drivers do I?
