Default 2x monitors

I have outputted to 2 different monitors from my 6600GT.

Is there any way to make each monitor a different desktop. Like when I go full screen on one, I can still do stuff on the other one instead of it going blank.

thanks in advance

man these peas ROCK!

Do a search for it on this site (Search button is the fourth one from the left).

Multiple monitor questions pop up all the time, and most have been answered multiple times.

Click on your secondary monitor, click extend my windows desktop onto this monitor.
