    Hi
    Yesterday I saw someone working on a MacBook Pro 15", pretty normal, but the MBP was also connected to a HDMI beamer and displaying a movie.
    Still the person was working with Microsoft Office? I regret that I did not ask so I do it here.

    Thanks in advance

    Just drag the video to the external monitor/beamer and put it on full-screen mode...:confused:

    or did you activate "Mirror Displays" under System Preferences -> Displays -> Arrangement tab.

    what is a beamer?

    Is that a projector?

    If so, then it was just being treated as a secondary display. Same steps as using a monitor.
