Right-click an open area of the desktop.
Choose Properties
Click the Settings tab
Use the drop-down box to select monitors.
Check the box that says "Extend my Widows desktop to this monitor" as you choose monitors.
Click "Identify" and each monitor will have it's number displayed on the screen.

If your laptop has another video out connector, it will appear as a choice, don't extend desktop that one if it is not in use.
