Mirrored output to desktop - how to disable?

Hi all.

Can the mirrored output to desktop monitor be disabled while wearing the Rift?

I'm running Windows 7 and Oculus 1.3, GTX 980ti and a DK2 (CV is ordered!). While everything is looking good, I'd like to have every ounce of GPU power directed toward the Rift.

Is it possible to turn off the mirrored output to the desktop?

    I tried this a few times when using Virtual Desktop and found my DK2 resolution dropped?

    I think Jas is worried that someone is going to see him 'testing' out the new more adult natured sites!!! For experimental purposes only of course!

    It's a bugger when your watching VR porn and don't realize the wife's behind you seeing it on the monitor isn't it :D ;)  Until you get a not so virtual smack around the head...
