Using extended desktop (dual screen) with the Intel graphics
driver
Extended desktop is the method for giving yourself more than one monitor and being able to display
different content on both. This allows a larger working environment but also, when used with a
projector for presentations, means that the presenter can see something different to his audience.
Connections
First, all the relevant connections must be made:
1. Power the computer on
2. Power on the second monitor / projector
3. Plug in the second monitor / projector. If your speakers are turned on you should hear a
chime to tell you the new connection has been detected.
Enabling extended desktop
1. Find the Intel graphics driver icon in the system tray, to the left of the clock generally. This
is highlighted in yellow above.
2. Right click on the icon
3. Select Graphics Options
4.
Select Output to
5. Select Extended desktop
6. Of the 2 options, select Notebook + Monitor (see
image below) – this will make the laptop screen the primary desktop and applications should
open here first .
7. Once you've selected this option you should see your desktop wallpaper appear on the
second screen / projector. You can now drag applications across the desktops as you see fit.
