Freeze and Extend

Many teachers have struggled with needing to leave directions or an activity on their smartboard but also needing to respond to an email. With your laptop connected to the smartboard, you cannot do both of these at the same time unless you either freeze your display or use extended display.

To freeze your display, find the remote to your projector. On there, you should see a button that says "Freeze". When you hit this button, the projector will freeze on the current screen. To test if it is truly frozen, move your mouse and watch to see if it moves on the smartboard. If it does not move, then you can work on your laptop without students seeing your screen.
