  • laptop/additional monitor/windows 7

    Hooked up an additional monitor to my laptop and it automatically detected the monitor. I would like to use the monitor as my main monitor including the task bar. It is showing for multiple displays 1/2 multiple monitors. I selected extend these monitors which worked except for it made the laptop the main monitor. How would I switch this?

    Hi, you right click the desktop and choose 'Screen Resolution' Select the screen you want as the main and then choose the option 'Make this my main display'

    I do tend to think 'outside the box' so others may not always share the same views.
