How do i fix a split screen of my Toshiba c600d-t36b laptop


The quickest way to change the display output settings is to use the
display hot key (Fn + F5):
1 Press Fn and F5 simultaneously.
2 While holding down Fn, press F5 repeatedly until the setting
you want takes effect. Briefly pause each time you press the F5
key to allow time for the display to change.
This hot key cycles through the settings in the following order
(the last two options are available if an external monitor is
connected):
? Built-in display only
? Built-in display and external monitor (simultaneously)
? External monitor only
? Built-in display and TV (or other external video device)
? TV (or other external video device)
? External monitor and TV
? Built-in display and external monitor (extended mode)
? Built-in display and TV (extended mode)
? External monitor and TV (extended mode)
? Swap-Switch primary display between internal display
and external monitor when using extended desktop

When you run multiple monitors in "extend" mode you will only get the icons and the "Start" button on one monitor. All it does is spread your desktop across both monitors.

How do you get a pic to extend desktop to tv monitor using vha to vga cord? I had no problem when I used a s-video hook up. I plugged in the pc and tv using the s-video cable, Choose Display, extended the...


What is occurring is the TV monitor is extending your desktop, where what you were doing in the past is switching between the two. When you plugged the VGA cable in, what occurred is your desktop was increased to account for the size of the TV, and it is acting like a second monitor, If you go into the display properties on your computer you will see a monitor with a 1 and one with a 2. The monitor with a 2 on it is the television, and whatever side it is to the #1 monitor (most likely to the right) if you scroll your mouse to the right of the monitor on your computer you should see it appear on the TV, to play or have a window on your TV, simply click and drag the window into the TV screen Frame, and then maximize the window, this will allow you to continue to work on your computer monitor while the other program runs on the television. It's basically like having two monitors instead of switching between the two

Dell monitor will only duplicate laptop screen. I want to extend. This was working before and stopped after removing and reconnecting monitor


Right click on the desktop, go to properties, go to settings tab. There you will see your display adapters. Identify screens 1 and 2. Assign monitor 2 to extended desktop. This is where your issue can be solved. Play around with it and get to know it. You can change the monitor to right and left, etc.

Dual monitors can't extend desktop


Connecting Two Monitors
Use the cable adapter to connect a VGA monitor and a DVI monitor to the DVI-I connector on the back panel.


When you connect two monitors, the video driver will detect this connection and activate the multimonitor functionality.
This is the only way to enable extended display. If you use a standard splitter and connect two DVI montors, the display will only be mirrored.

Cannot display image on a proector using Lenovo laptop


Ok.I got your point.Actually you're in extended mode.
Once you connect you can have 2 types of output to your projector.
1.Clone mode--> make everthing look the same
2.Extended mode--> have another new space for you to use.
** in extended mode you'll have a background of your desktop.you can drag any running program to that space.

How to setup clone and extended mode
1.Click start-->Settings-->Conteol Panel-->Display
2.Under Display Properties window click the last tab name settings
3.Under display select you 2nd monitor
3.Below Screen Resolution you should be able to see a checkbox "extended my windows destop on to this monitor"
please check this box for extended mode or uncheck it incase you won't to use clone mode.

takecare.
