    Hey, Recently, I became the owner of a nice new 20" samsung monitor, I bought a mini dvi to vga cable and got everything set up so that my imac 20" had 2 screens working perfect, what I would like to do however, is to have it so one screen is always running vmware fullscreen with windows 7 on it... Through previous attempts, it has always become full screen across the 2 screens, is there some setting i need to change or is it not possible to make an app fullscreen when the imac thinks the 2 screens are 1?
    Thanks for your help

    In VMWare, just click the View Menu, then disable "Use all displays in Full Screen". Then it will use just one screen at a time, and you can choose which one by moving the VM window to that screen before turning on Full Screen mode.
