I want to take a part of my main monitor and have it display on a secondary monitor.  The purpose is to display item prices and invoice totals from Quick Books onto my secondary monitor for clients to see.

Thanks for the quick response.  I guess I probably didn't word my request properly.  I already am running 2 screens.  I use QuickBooks as my POS software (not the POS version, Premier Retail), and my secondary display shows a PowerPoint presentation for in-store advertising purposes.  I just want to take the area of the Quick Books invoice that show the amount for the item and the invoice total, and display a "copy" of that onto the corner of the secondary monitor.

Hopefully that explains my situation a little better.

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like a third-party application is the best solution, Windows does not natively offer this
kind of functionality.

A monitor management software program like "UltraMon" from Realtime Soft may be what you
are looking for. You can mirror selected applications and modify the mirrored image on the
second monitor to your needs. The freeware version can be downloaded from Realtime Soft's
website - http://www.realtimesoft.com/ultramon/

Seems like a neat program - don't know if it will work yet for what I need, but hope to test over the next day or 2.  Will give you the points if it works how I wanted.

This program works well for duplicating the complete screen but I haven't yet confirmed it to work exactly as I wanted.  At any rate, it's a neat program - thanks for your time and assistance.
