Using two screens and two desktops on Windows 7

Using two screens and two desktops on Windows 7

My father wants to be a nerd and add another screen to his new Acer laptop. I think that is easy to do, but how could I make the original and extra-screen show different desktops. Aren't there some kind of programs for making virtual desktops? is there any other way? I've see pictures about this kind of "modifications".

The simplest method is to make an image of the correct resolution and paste the two images you want in, but there's software such as Ultramon(not free, but fantastic stuff), or the free DisplayFusion software, which can do this for you automatically. Congratulate him on making the jump to multiple monitors, too - it's a night-and-day experience :)
