I'm such a techno peasant


Recommended Posts

I am hoping that someone could provide a little direction on this subject.

I am visiting and they have given me another monitor to attach to so that I'm not suck looking at the laptop screen all the time. However, it extends my desktop onto the other monitor and I can't seem to get rid of this checkmark (see image).

I've tried unchecking it but it just keeps coming back. There are days when I really hate computers and today is one of them!

There should be a Function key combination to transfer the display from your integrated LCD to the external monitor. You should not even have to touch the display control panel. On my dell notebook it is Fn-F8 but every laptop is different. Look along your F keys and you should either see a monitor style symbol or CRT/LCD text on one of the keys.
