Eyefinity Setup to Show Desktop while Gaming

Hey all,

I'm not sure if I'll be asking this question correctly...

But I have an ATI 5850 with 3 monitors hooked up equaling a resolution of 5760 x 1200. Usually, I run an extended desktop spanning from one monitor to the next.

When I'm running a game with Eyefinity enabled at the normal resolution (1920 x 1200) it puts the game on all 3 monitors at 1920 x 1200. Usually when playing certain games, I like to have a second monitor loaded up with a guide, or information regarding the game that I can follow while playing it. Since I've gotten Eyefinity set up, I've had to Alt-Tab out of the game to view the desktop while in game.

Is there any way to set this up to get this to work with the least amount of hassle?

Thanks in advance!

I am such a noob. I figured it out myself. Completely forgot I could make presets.

So far what I've learned:
