external screen

Hello,

I use Helium+Openbox on a Lenovo laptop with an external screen.
I am not happy: actually, the screen of laptop and the external screen are one great window. So of something is launched, i appears in the lower left corner; then it is not easy to take it and drag it onto the external screen (can you understand my English?:).

I studied xrandr, but did not found any help.
Outpuy of xrandr:

rbc@v320:~$ xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 3840 x 1080, maximum 8192 x 8192
eDP-1 connected primary 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 382mm x 215mm
   1920x1080     60.02*+  59.93 
   1680x1050     59.95    59.88 
   ....

HDMI-1 connected 1920x1080+1920+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 521mm x 294mm
   1920x1080     60.00*+  50.00    59.94 
   1920x1080i    60.00    50.00    59.94

Re: external screen

I'd try arandr (gui for xrandr). Test in vbox:

Your mileage may vary, depending on the drivers used.
Worth reading: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/multihead
p.s. Also 'obconf' gui, section 'Windows' is probably worth checking.
