    I have connected my Surface 2 to an external HD monitor, everything is OK although a bit large when I duplicate the screen but when I select to show only the external monitor the resolution seems to change although it still shows 1920 x 1080, which is better to use. However when I do this Word & Excel won't maximise to full screen and Outlook won't even start.

    Anybody else seen this and found a workaround?

    When I connect my 60" HDTV to the Surface RT, I select "extended desktop". This gives me the desktop on the RT's screen and the HDTV at full native resolution. I can maximize all of the Office apps on it without any problem.

    But that is the Surface RT. Microsoft is still having display driver issues with the Surface 2 so that might be contributing to the difference in behavior that you are experiencing.
