Sorry to ask two simple questions. (1) Dell Latitude E6400 with docking station and two monitors-- how do I show different content on each monitor? (2) Logitech laser mouse-- how do you switch pointer from one monitor to other? Many thanks. LJK

What OS are you using? The best method would be to get into your dispaly properties and then select the monitor that you want to display different content on. From there, there should be a small check box in the options that says "extend this monitor." Do not make it your main display. From there the mouse issue should take care of itself, as you should then be able to move the mouse either right or left and it will show up on your extended monitor.
