Any way to use two monitors and one is for desktop?
So basically I have two monitors one is a older monitor that is 1440x990 and a new monitor that is 1920x1080... so what i want to do is have the one 1920x1080 monitor to play games and only that one monitor and then the 1440x990 monitor to always have the desktop on it... my specs cant handle gaming on both so is there anyway to make this happen?

Welcome. Glad I could help. Please mark this thread as solved if you have no further questions by choosing a best answer. Thanks!
Well the link he gave you gives the tech. side of setting them up as far as displaying.
For gaming the best way to do it, is to extend the desktop and in game set the display as fullscreen window mode. This will allow to have no borders (pet peeve of mine) while also being able to drag your mouse simply across to the other screen. Other wise you will still have to alt tab.
Of course this depends on the games you play and wither you need to look at the net while playing (aka guides, videos, etc).
ok yeah that actually exactly what i wanted to do, so how do i do it? im confused on your explanation
ok so it kinda works if i click on something while in bf3 on the other screen it puts it in windows mode and kinda escapes the program which is annoying
