I have recently upgraded my PC to a dual-screen setup. One of my monitors is now 1920x1080 and the other is 1280x1024.

I would like to play Skyrim on the 1920x1080 monitor, while doing web browsing, etc on the second monitor - in a way similar to how SW:TOR works with dual screen systems.

I've looked in the options, but there doesn't seem to be any obvious way to accomplish this. Can anyone help?


You have two choices:

  • Run Skyrim in windowed mode.

Or, if you don't like the bars on the window, you can try:

  • +1 thanks... the Windowed mode doesn't play well with a full screen resolution. I'll look into the mod.

    My setup has 3 monitors. Please just be aware that removing and giving Skyrim focus can just cause it to give up and quit... Save Often.
