Wow!! Pretty Good!! One Problem, Things Opening on Secondary Monitor with Live CD.

I just tried Zorin OS 12. pretty good!!!
While trying the live CD, I put my primary monitor as "primary." When I open up some things, it opens up on the secondary monitor.

Wondering if this is just a Live CD problem, or will I have this if I install?

Other then that, what a nice distro!!

Thank you,

If the 2 monitors are not showing the same thing, X has a virtual screen that encompasses both monitors. If you had 2 monitors @1024x768, X would use a virtual screen size of 2048x768, or 1024x1536, depending on which was configured.
So things opening on the second monitor could just be windows opened at an offset. Something opened at 0,0 will have the top left-hand corner of it's window in the top left-hand corner of the screen. You can often specify window size and position, so several windows can be opened in X without overlapping.
