Folks,
I am running Windows 7. I connected a second monitor to my laptop (monitor only). I write a lot of modules and I wanted to be able to drag the module to the second monitor. I drag what I need from monitor A  but it does not go beyond monitor A. I have tried all the various display setting  but I can only duplicate the screens. The second monitor is a Dell and my laptop in an HP dv7.

Right-click on the desktop and select Screen Resolution.   Under "Multiple displays:" do you have the option to "Extend these displays"?

That's the most likely place to find your solution.  Also from there you can drag the displays around to get the logical placement you want.

click on Start button, then  Control Panel, and then, under Appearance and Personalization, click Adjust screen resolution.

Click the drop-down list next to Multiple displays, click Extend these displays, and then click OK.

Update or FYI:
I was dragging to the left when I should have been dragging to the right.
