So I was playing around with my PC stuff today, and I made the discovery that I can use an HDMI cable to plug my TV into the computer, which is right next to my monitor. All I need to do is pivot my chair 30 degrees and I'll be on the TV.
I know nothing about playing around with Dual displays. I've figured out extension just had my TV output a blank version of my desktop (just the wallpaper), and clone just has the same thing going on both screens.
So here's what i'd really like to do; is there a way to run things so that on my TV I'm playing one of my PC games with a gamepad or playing a movie I downloaded, while on my monitor I have a website or something else going? It would be awesome to be able to check a map for a game without alt+tab, or have a movie I downloaded going on the side while I work on posts.
