    Hi. Wanting to try out Big Picture mode, I come across a big fault here. Whenever a game loads, the game loads normally and becomes full screen, but I see no method of moving the game onto my second monitor, which in this case is my TV. I have it connected via HDMI as a dual-monitor setup, and that works fine. It's only the issue with games, and not to mention other full screen applications. Is there a way to simply move full screen apps and games to the second monitor? Thanks.

    iirc, games natively run via your primary monitor. You could always swap them in your monitor settings.
