Multiple Displays Using Your Teacher Tablet

On your teacher work/docking station:


  • Right-click on your background.
  • Choose “Screen Resolution”.
  • Under “Display” choose “1|2. Multiple Monitors”.
  • Under “Multiple Displays” choose “Duplicate desktop on 1 and 2”.

Now you are ready to show the announcements!


  • Open your PowerPoint.
  • The document should open on your tablet screen. If it opens on your big monitor, simply drag it to the left, so it is on your tablet screen.
  • In PowerPoint, click “Slide Show”.
  • CHECK: “Monitor” = Primary Monitor.
  • DO NOT CHECK: “Use Presenter View”.
  • Click “From Beginning” on the left.

Your announcements will now run on their own on your SmartBoard and on your tablet while you work on e-mails and grading using your monitor!
