    I have connected a second monitor to my set up....having trouble getting F1 2011 to launch and run full screen on the 2nd monitor. Other games have settings in the graphics controlls....I can't find anything in F1 2011.

    I wouldn't bother doing a 2 screen setup the line down the cenre of the screen is really offputting.

    If you still want to do it then if you have ATi then go into the control center/ Creating and Arranging Desktops and create a group 2x1. if the second monitor isnt extended then do this (might be on duplicate at first)

    After this load up the game and the higher resolutions should now be avaliable.

    In that case all you have to do is make the second screen your preferred screen.

    Andrew is correct, however this would also mean that all applications and games would open on that screen. Naturally some apps like your browser for example, will remember their last screen position on closing. So dragging your browser to the No.2 screen (the old No.1 screen), then closing it, should enable it to open on the No.2 screen by default, if that's what you want.
