Windows 10: Using 2nd monitor Solved

    Using 2nd monitor

    Is it possible using extended display to show a movie on a 2nd monitor while using pc screen(as 1st monitor) for web surfing?
    I have tried selecting screen 1 or 2 as main display but no matter which screen I project movie on , as soon as I select internet from the other screen , web page is displayed over movie.
    The only items I seem able to display on 1st monitor (without overlaying on 2nd screen)are Windows settings pages .
    I am using an ASUS X540LA with Windows 10, connected to 2nd monitor via VGA lead.
    Any help appreciated

    Can't you just drag the browser window on to the other monitor?
