    I've recently updated from Windows 7 to Windows 8 on my Dell XPS 15 laptop. I normally run a dual monitor setup with my 33" monitor and I am quite fond of watching netflix on the secondary monitor while gaming/doing school work/blogging/reading news/etc... however I'm noticing two things that I would like help with:

    1) there is no way to run Netflix on the non primary monitor.

    2) there is no way to allow the netflix app to keep playing while running another program (non app). It just exits out.

    Are there app settings to get around either or both of these? Some help, please!

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    when you upgraded did you install drivers afterward? Your monitor config is usually set by your GPU driver, try checking the settings.
