HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have two screens hooked up to my laptop. I am able to view items on two different screens. One being the laptop and the other is one of the monitors. Through extended view I can move back and forth between screens. However the third monitor will only show my laptop screen. Can somebody tell me how I can move things back and forth on all three screens? One of the screens is hooked up through vga and the other through thunderbolt.

@Martinez23 To change the viewing mode on Windows 10, use these steps:

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Click on System.
  3. Click on Display.
  4. Under the "Select and rearrange displays" section, select the monitor that you want to adjust.
  5. Under the "Multiple displays" section, use the drop-down menu to set the appropriate viewing mode, including:

    • Duplicate desktop — Shows duplicate desktop according to the description.
    • Extend — Expands the primary desktop to the display currently selected.
    • Disconnect this display — Turn off the selected monitor.

After you complete the steps, you may need to repeat steps No. 4 and 5 to set the display mode on the remaining monitors. Also, note that using these settings, you can make any of the monitors as your primary display.
