You can't. You can select a folder and a collection, but can't separate them. What is the underlying requirement ?

When I am putting together a show or submission, I create a collection for it. I want to be able to keep that collection in view on one monitor while using the other monitor to browse through other collections and folders.

OK, doing exactly that is not going to be possible, but would this help? Right click the submission/show collection and choose Set as Target Collection. This means that whenever you select images anywhere and hit "B" they are added directly to that collection instead of going to the quick collection. Does that solve much of the problem?

Yes, thanks, that will help a lot. Still, I am going to add my feature to the "LR5 wish list" thread.
