I have my laptop pulling duty currently as a desktop replacement, and I don't want the screen on the laptop to be used at all. Now usually, in windows, I would hit "Fn + F4" and it would turn off the laptop display and set it to use just the external monitor, however, it won't work now. Also, I can't get any windows to maximize on the monitor, they look like there's a big space at the bottom where I can see my desktop background. I'm really hoping to get this working well, so my wife and I can both use this computer instead of the clunky old desktop that we have been using.

Thanks!!
