I have a 13 inch Macbook Pro. I am using my old monitor, and it works fine! I wanted to have the menu bar on my monitor as well, and I found out about clamshell mode. I plugged in my keyboard and mouse, and it worked like a charm. Everything was at a normal size and at pretty high quality! However, my keyboard recently stopped working and I don't want to get a new one. Is there a way I can change my display settings to match that of clamshell mode without actually going into clamshell mode? Thanks!
Clamshell without the clamshell? Kinda oximoronic, dont'cha think?
Given that you want the primary window to be the external monitor, "bless" it by opening System Preferences / Displays, arranging the layout of both displays as desired (yeah, both WILL have to be on) then click and drag the mini-menubar on the square representing the internal display onto the other one.
