External Monitor with laptop

HP 2000 Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Trying to use my laptop with an external HP monitor; I have them connected; using FN & F4 keys I can toggle between displays (monitors) or both.  However, when only external monitor is on (which I want), & I close the laptop lid (as the HP monitor is designed to slide the laptop under it), the laptop shuts off & the external monitor goes dark.

 

How do I keep the laptop on when the lid/screen is closed? 

 

(HP Tech Support wants $49 to tell me.)

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

Right click the Battery icon in the Taskbar and select Power Options.

 

In the following window, select 'Choose what closing the lid does' in the left hand pane.

 

In the subsequent window, next to the heading 'When I close the lid' set this to 'Do nothing' in the dropdown menu for both 'On battery' and 'Plugged in'.

 

Click the Save Changes button at the bottom of the window to apply this change.

 

Regards,

 

DP-K
