Do you mean slide the image off the screen on the front of the radio to the attached monitor?  If so, I'm not sure this is possible.  The HDMI port on the back of the radio simply takes the image and ports it out to the attached screen. I don't think it's like a PC where the attached monitor becomes a 'second display' where you can have different things showing.

Don, does you computer's video card support two monitors?  If not you can purchase a USB video adapter https://smile.amazon.com/gp/search/ref=a9_sc_1?rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Ausb+to+video+adapter&keywords=us... 
Then go to your display control panel-screen resolution and extend your desktop to the new display.
