Two monitor noob question
Thanks guys, I got it to work windowed. I will give the Fixed approach when I get home tonight.

@Aldar-Roanaok The external device removed the comfort of copy/paste container title and password.
A second monitor would be a more comfortable extension in general.

True, I'd forgotten the pasting of passwords. The cache name should be saved in game though. For those that don't know, if you've previously typed in "EvE-Scout Rescue..." it should present as an option when you type "e" into the cache name field.
Not that helps in this discussion since if you're needing to paste across the fact the name is saved is irrelevant.
Orsel, you are so correct. Between Allison and Tripwire, I will never go back to just one monitor.

@Ross-Sharvas What is the problem that needs to be fixed?

Once you have "extended" your displays in Windows' display settings, each monitor will be treated as separate from one another. You just need to then open EVE on one monitor, set it as a "Fixed Window" in the game display settings and put Firefox on the other monitor. Both applications will be running in full screen and you will be able to run you cursor along both screens without needing to tab-out out of the game.

If, like me, the Eve window disappears when in fixed mode, windowed mode fixes that. For some reason when I make my browser active, Eve would disappear. No idea why, not too bothered by playing in window mode. Must be something with my Win 10 setup. WoW does not do it but StarCraft sometimes does.

@Ross-Sharvas In the game, in the options screen under graphics (first tab if I remember correctly)
I may be completely off base on this: In Eve, under Display and Graphics, set fixed window. Three options down under "Display Adapter", I can set which output port on my graphics card will have Eve. My graphics card has two output ports (for two monitors). Once I set that, I sign in on my first monitor but the game launches on the second monitor full screen.
