Extended desktop removes my icons and taskbar RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just bought a shiny new HDMI cable and I want to run my computer through my flatsceen, but I want to have it function as a second monitor that I can drag windows onto. When I have the "extend desktop" option enabled, all my icons disappear from both monitors and I have to wait the fifteen seconds for it to reset. I can duplicate the desktop just fine, but I want to be able to do different tasks on each screen. Any ideas?
