Tricks

You can get World of Warcraft to play in a Windowed (Full Screen) mode on multiple monitors using this in macros. Performance may drop dramatically depending on your system and monitor sizes. Examples below:

Monitor 1
/console gxWindow 1
/console gxMaximize 1
/console gxMonitor 1
/console gxrestart
Monitor 2
/console gxWindow 1
/console gxMaximize 1
/console gxMonitor 2
/console gxrestart
