I’m not able to project the slides to both my laptop monitor and the projector at the same time. I used the Function and F8 keys to toggle among the 3 settings (laptop only, wall/projector only, and both laptop and wall/projector). Laptop alone works, wall/projector alone works. But when I try to display on both, it displays ok on the laptop, but on the wall/projector it only shows the desktop wallpaper/background. If I have the desktop on the laptop monitor, it (the laptop) display both the icons and background on the desktop, but only the background on the wall thru the projector (the icons are not visible). If I have the powerpoint slides on the laptop, the image via the projector still only displays the wallpaper/background on the wall (ie., the slides are not visible thru the projector) - (which is interesting because the background is not visible on the laptop monitor - only the powerpoint slides are visible).
It seems to me that the physical connection is ok since the image of the wallpaper/desktop is sent to the projector; I’ve changed the background, and it does display properly on the wall (via the projector). So it seems as though something is preventing whatever is on top of the desktop (ie., icons, or powerpoint) from being sent to the projector.
Based on the reply below (from jingyenshiau), I checked for an extended desktop. The second blue box in the Settings tab of the Display Properties box is grayed out and not active; I don't think the extended desktop is enabled.
Any suggestions as to how I can get the powerpoint slides to display on both the laptop and via the projector??
