Hello people,

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!


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5), Mid-2012

    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.
