Is it possible in Blender to open a completely different window and place it on a second monitor? The same way we can open a shading or uv window and split the screen, but to have that shading window placed on a different monitor. Thank you for your help.

Hold down the Shift key and then drag from the top right hand corner of the 3D viewport as if you were wanting to split the screen, this will result in opening a smaller floating window of the 3D viewport which you can then drag to your second monitor and then set full screen.

Or Open the Window menu at the top left and choose the New Window option.
