How to prevent size changes with multiple, different size monitors?

For example, on my primary monitor, the taskbar and all other items enlarge by 125%, while on my second monitor, everything is at normal size. I understand this is done to prevent the size of windows being dragged from one monitor to the other's sizes changing, but I can't stand everything being so big and inefficient on my primary monitor.

Answer: 
Hello, If you want the display to be just on one screen, you will need to go to your computers' Display Settings which can be accessed by right clicking on your desktop and personalize your display or through the control panel->Appearance and Personalization-> Display. In the settings, for the multiple display option, select "Display desktop only on 1" or "Display desktop only on 2" depending on which monitor is 1 or 2.

How to move your dock into the center of the screen on a Mac?

Any fancy Terminal commands? And no, I'm not talking about the bottom center. I mean smack dab in the center of the screen. If there isn't anyway to do this, and my brother is actually just a magical fairy, is it possible to make two separate docks? Like, one in the bottom left and the other in the bottom right? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

How to switch to an external monitor with a smashed laptop screen?

Unfortunately, I have broken my laptop monitor and have no warranty to fix it. I have plugged in an external monitor, which is powered on, to my laptop. The hole that it is plugged into has three rows of five dots across it, I do not know what it is called. I have tried randomly pressing a function button on my keyboard which resembles a rectangle with two vertical lines beside it. Any way I can get it to display?

Answer: 
You can get this fixed at www.lovemylaptop.com for a very small fee. They will also collect from your home and deliver it back to you. I hope this helps!

How to set up computer with dual monitors to only play sound from a certain monitor?

I have my computer hooked up to my TV through a miniHDMI cable. I want to have the sound to come from only That monitor. For example: I want to have netflix for example to play on the TV while I am playing a game on my PC monitor, but only want sound to play from the TV, and not the PC monitor. I have windows 7 home premium edition 64 bit, and use an INTEL/nvidia system if it matters.

Answer: 
You can easily extend your Windows desktop across more than one monitor by plugging two or more monitors into a desktop computer or one or more monitors into a laptop. Most laptops allow you to connect one external monitor. A desktop that spans two or more monitors significantly increases your desktop area so that you can drag windows, program icons, and other items to any location on the extended desktop. read more : follow link

How to pick what monitor a video will display on when choosing fullscreen option?

I am running a laptop screen with an external monitor hooked up to it. When I fullscreen a youtube video the video will automatically display on the external monitor. How can I force it to display on the laptop screen instead? Thanks

Answer: 
I think the fullscreen option always goes to the primary monitor, not the secondary or extended desktop one in Windows something. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-keep-flash-videos-full-screen-on-a-second-monitor/ "When playing a video, it is also shown fullscreen on the other monitor This happens if the video mirroring feature of your video card is enabled. You can disable this option on the tab for your video card under advanced display properties, Nvidia calls this feature Full Screen Video, for ATI video cards it is called theater mode, and Matrox calls it PureVideo/DVDMax." http://www.realtimesoft.com/multimon/faq.asp#VideoMirroring
