I may be in the wrong forum.
I want to run simultaneous programs on another monitor besides the laptop and haven't found the answer so I will say exactly what I want to do.
I can switch monitor from my laptop to hdmi, vga, whatever no problems. Use extend, duplicate and whatever to another monitor. But, I want to use my laptop to web search on my laptop screen at the same time as I am watching something on my TV off of my HDMI output. I watch Netflix and Hulu while connected to my TV on the HDMI port through the internet. My external DVD player has Netflix and wireless for example but it will not update or show subtitles on either Netflix or Hulu, but connection thru the internet works fine on Captions. I am hard of hearing so need this.
I don't mind purchasing software that will do this. Anyone know of a program that will allow me to do this? I seem to only be able to switch back and forth between monitors, not individual simultaneous programs independent of each other on both monitors. Any help appreciated
