Hi @Heliski33

Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you.


You can change the display mode for multiple screens from outside Settings using the Project keyboard shortcut, which is Windows Key + P. The Project panel extends from the side of the main display, where you can change the mode to Duplicate or Extend on the fly. An additional mode, Second Screen Only, closes the main display when another monitor is added to use for display. 

The available options include Computer OnlyDuplicateExtend, and Projector Only.


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
