I bought A new Compaq Persario 1200 laptop with Windows 98 on. I now use a older laptop with Windows 95 on.I use a second Monitor on that and all I do is hook it up to the monitor port and I see a cabon copy of my laptop screen. But on the new one with Windows 98 when I do this the only thing I see is the desktop with no icons . In the display tab I enabled the second monitor but I see no sytem tray or icons unless I drag them over.My problem is I'm doing a power point slide show but it shows up on the laptop screen instead of the monitor.Is there anyway to make this work?

Try this JS! (For PP 98)

Dennis
==========================

1. On the Slide Show menu, click Set Up Show.
 
2. Click Screen (this button is located at the bottom of the Set Up Show dialog
   box.)
 
   NOTE: The Screen button is visible only if two or more monitors are connected
   to your computer.
 
   You should see icons representing your display devices.
 
3. Select the monitor on which you want the presentation to appear.
 
   The icon with the menu bar across the top is the device selected as your main
   monitor in the Monitors control panel.
 
4. Click OK.
 
The slide show runs only on the display you selected. This setting is saved with
the presentation.
