Slideshow problems on secondary monitor

When i hook up my laptop up to a larger monitor Lightroom works fine but then when i click slideshow the large monitor just goes black and the slideshow reverts back to the laptop.


Does anybody know of a way i can get the slideshow to show on the larger secondary monitor?

    Slideshow playback happens on the primary monitor (the one the main window of Lightroom is currently open in). To make slideshow in a secondary monitor, you will need to either move Lightroom to the second monitor or open the Second Monitor in Lightroom and change it to Slideshow mode.

    There's also an option in the Playback panel in Slideshow module, for selecting the monitor to play on.  Could you have the wrong one selected?
