In this brief tutorial I will be teaching you how to toggle between two screens such as a monitor & a projector on your Windows pc. There are many instances when this technique could aid you in multitasking and making your job a bit easier. Screen toggling allows the user to display exactly what is being shown on the main display (monitor 1) to the second screen (projector/ monitor 2) or to split the projector & monitor into two separate desktops so that the user could have a larger work space and do more simultaneously.
There are four different settings.
Computer only: This option will black out the screen of the projector allowing only the monitor to display what is happening on the PC.
Duplicate: This option mirrors exactly what’s being displayed on the monitor.
Extend: This option splits the two displays into separate screens.
Projector only: This option will black out the screen of the monitor allowing only the projector to display what is happening on the PC.
To use the screen toggle function simply press & hold the Windows key + the P key. In the middle of the screen an option bar will pop up allowing you to choose whichever option suites your need.
