Show same screen on dual monitor

Hi, just got a dual monitor pc with a video card that allows me to easily view two diff applications/screens on the two monitors. My question is, how do use the second monitor as a projector if you will, to show the same image/window as my primary screen? That way i can have one monitor facing the visitor in my office and the other towards me and we can both see the same screen. Am very new to hw stuff so please provide detailed instructions if possible. Thanks for your help.

Probably easiest way is to do that with hardware. Get a VGA splitter like this one: http://www.cablestogo.com/product.asp?cat%5Fid=2820&sku=29610

Right click on your Windows Desktop then click Properties.  Click the Settings Tab then the Advanced button.  Click the Tab that is labled for your Graphics Card (mine is Intel) then click th eProperties button.   You should see an option for Dual Display - Clone - select this, Clcik Apply and then OK.  You should be good to go.

Yep the key words you are looking for here are Clone or Mirror.  2PiFL is pointing you in the right direction.
