This seems kind of like a weird question, but I use my laptop to play Halo: CE, and I recently got a new monitor. I can't seem to find an option anywhere that allows me to play a full windowed game on another monitor. My question is is it possible to get Halo: CE to play on the new monitor and not of the laptop screen?
Edit: And I have tried the "-window" option for the Halo properties, but I can't seem to be able to drag the game onto a new monitor.

rightclick the toolbar icon for your graphics card, or find its options another way.
Plug in the vga or hdmi.dvi cable to your laptop and monitor.
Select output to monitor or similar in the graphics options.
Actually you might wanna select dual output, if you have that option.

If you *do* use dual output(as in second monitor is just extended desktop space): Treat your laptop screen as monitor 0, and your new one as monitor 1. Then use -adapter #
