Go to display and then settings. Usually there is a check box that says something like extend desktop. Just uncheck that, hit apply and you should be back to one screen again.

You can get to the display properties either by an icon by the clock if your video card uses a manager or by right clicking on a blank spot on your desktop then select properties and the display manager comes up. Then just click on the settings tab.

And if nothing else unplug the video cable to the second monitor. the card should detect the change and set itself back to one screen.

Go to the video card driver manager ..(probably present in teh tray system in the right side on the task bar ) open it ..and default any setting s...
another thing to verify is the enabling or disabling of the second monitor...if you disable it ...this will default the view also to a single display
for laptops the short cut for this on keyboard is FN+F4..
but if it is a desktop ..Im not sure if it will work or not...anyway ..just look on the video card driver manager ...right click on it ..and open options or settings ..there you will find almost all you need for settings..

Widen the screen on Westinghouse tv


Screens are controlled by ASPECT RATIO.
Monitors can have 4:3 16:9 and 16:10 ratios.

You are doing 1 of 3 things.
  1. You have a regular monitor and the tv and are duplicating the screen.
  2. You have a regular monitor and the TV and are extending the screen.
  3. You have just the tv connected.
Your video card has to have a screen resolution that meets the tv's ratio to have the tv take the full screen.

If your configuration is 1. the tv will only match the monitor resolution, so if you change the screen resolution, you may get bars on the monitor, and the tv will go wide screen.

if your configuration is 2. the tv is controlled independently and you can select it to change its resolution to an appropriate aspect resolution. *this requires that your video card gives you the correct screen resolution for your tv. not all displays will work.

If your configuration is 3. the tv is the only resolution that is being pushed and just adjust the resolution til the screen is filled in.

To adjust the screen resolution, right click on the desktop where there isnt an icon and select either Properties (windows xp) or Screen Resolution (windows vista, 7 and 8).

if you have 2 screens press the identify button and it will put a number on each screen. click the appropriate screen and go to the resolution dropdown below. Change, apply and if it doesn't look right, revert and try a different setting. if you try them all and it won't take up the full screen, then the video card can't push the video resolution your monitor wants.

Widen border on what? A document, if so go into page setup. If you're talking about the whole screen, go into the Desktop under the Control Panel and change the screen resolution.

To widen border on Toshiba lap top


Wide screen monitor distortionDepending upon the screen resolution that has been set inDisplay, the image will be distorted on these large wide screen monitors.
Create a large circle image using a draw program such as Paint (hold down theShift key as you create the circle as it will draw a perfect circle).
Open Control Panel - Display - Settings tab and adjust the Screen resolutionslider, increase or decrease the screen resolution then bring the circle imageto the front and check the image, if the circle is still distorted then changethe screen resolution and check the circle again until you are satisfied withthe image of the circle. When you are satisfied then click apply.If you cannot change the screen resolution then most likely the incorrect video driver has been installed.

1) Either, you don't have drivers installed that the resolution is set to low pixels or pixels that don't match your screen type (Computer does it automatically if the drivers are installed)
