    Chessmaster runs in full-screen mode... however, you can use different "layouts", which effectively changes the size of the main window.

    Chessmaster Grandmaster Edition does work with dual-monitor systems; in this case, you can move the Chessmaster window to one monitor, and work with other programs on the remaining monitor - no changes are needed.

    Layouts are used mostly to configure size and position between different resolutions (800 x 600, 1024 x 768, etc.)

    Sorry for the delay...

    Can you tell me what video card you have, and if you have installed the latest drivers?

    Aside from the updates in the Chessmaster Grandmaster Edition Downloads, there are no new updates.

    This is still unfixed and remains a problem in July 2021.

    The main CM window cannot be resized if moved to the second monitor. You can still watch the game playing, but you will not be able to interact with it.
    The solution then is to revert to single monitor (via keyboard function [Fn] key + Function key [e.g., F8 on Dell laptops]) and then resize it so that when you do switch to dual monitor mode, the CM main window is only in the Primary Monitor (laptop's). So that way you don't have to kill the CM process.
