To change what shows on your displays, press Windows logo key + P. Here’s what you can choose:
If you need more help, here’s what to do:
You can change the resolution of your displays. However, we suggest using the recommended resolution to get the most out of your displays.
You’ll see this option when Windows detects more than one display. Each display will be numbered to help you identify them more easily.
To see which number corresponds to a display, select Start, then type settings. Select Settings > System > Display > Identify. A number appears on the screen of the display it’s assigned to.
If you connected another display and it isn’t showing in Settings, select Start >Settings > System> Display > Multiple displays > Detect.
If you have multiple displays, you can change how they’re arranged. This is helpful if you want your displays to match how they’re set up in your home or office. In Display settings, select and drag the display to where you want. Do this with all the displays you want to move. When you’re happy with the layout, select Apply. Test your new layout by moving your mouse pointer across the different displays to make sure it works like you expect.
After you’re connected to your external displays, you can change settings like your resolution, screen layout, and more. To see available options, in Settings, select System > Display.
Windows will recommend an orientation for your screen. To change it in Display settings, under Scale & layout, choose your preferred Display orientation. If you change the orientation of a monitor, you’ll also need to physically rotate the screen. For example, you’d rotate your external display to use it in portrait instead of landscape.
