That windows key + P is slick! Had no idea. Works easily with my dual monitor workstation.

I forget to mention one of our staff members actually found there's a
simple hotkey (window+P) in Win7 that may help (basically just easy
way to change between clone/extend/on/off for monitors). I think
right now we are just going to leave in extend dt mode (secondary is
extended desktop background - library logo) and ctrl P to clone when
someone needs to show something.
When I was looking around I found something on sourceforge that sounded good-
Supposedly it has to the ability to move the active window to the
second display, and some other good things. I never actually tried it
(other things first) but maybe someone else has. I'm kind of hoping
someone here will try it.
Failing that if I ever get to try the others I'll let you know how it goes.
