Monitor and TV to desktop

I am trying to hook up both monitor and HDTV to desktop computer. Have AMD Radeon HD 6310 Graphics with both hdmi and regular output. When I plug both in only the TV is recognized. Monitor only has desktop background picture with no icons. Is there a software change I need to make?

    I jut want the same thing on both screens. Just looking for teh option to watch movies on a larger screen. Also there was not soundat teh TV when it was hooked up.
  3. well this can be done a few ways an easy way to do it,
    press the windows key and p at the same time and select duplicate.


    for the sound right click on the sound icon and select playback devices, click on the device you want to play sound (the tv
    ) and select "set as default".
    you will have to do the same thing and select the other output if you want to put the sound back on the pc.
