Are there any emulators that will open a full screen on a secondary display? I use media player classic on WinXP to watch media files on the TV simply by dragging the application to that screen then going to full screen via ALT-ENTER, freeing up my monitor for doing something else at the same time as I watch the video (previously I switched between the monitor and TV with a hotkey). I've tried doing this with a few emulators and it goes to full screen on the primary display (my monitor), leaving a tiny window on the TV, I'm guessing the size of the resolution of the emulator screen, surrounded by huge black borders. Like a 320x200 window in the middle of a 1024x768 display.

When I ask about any emulators, I mean any console or arcade emulators specifically. The ones I tried were a few NES emulators, all of which did the same thing. I have not yet tried with MAME, but I read a post a few days ago from someone who mentioned having the menu (MAME32? Front end?) running on one screen and the game on the other. It would be very useful to be able to go to gamefaqs or some such place while the game is running rather than pausing, switching to a window view, going back to the monitor display, looking up the info, switching back to the TV, going back to full screen, then finally unpausing, only to realize I need to look at the website again because I just forgot what I read in all that...
