    I am running a show and have a computer in front of me and the second display is appearing on a large screen on stage where I cannot see it. When I click on a folder on the desktop it opens the window on the second screen instead of on the one on my computer. When I Mirror Displays it appears again on the computer, but when I turn it off (it has to be turned off when I run the show) the window opens in the second screen. I have restarted, reset the PRAM, don't know how to get the window to appear on the primary screen... any ideas? Thanks for any help.

    If all else fails... use another monitor

    I had this problem a couple of weeks ago. If you open system preferences to configure the displays then the display options for the secondary monitor goes on the secondary monitor (large screen).

    The only thing I could suggest doing until it's sorted is to get another monitor that you will see, and split the connection so you could put the projector on No Show/Blank whilst adjusting items the secondary monitor.
