Windows 10. I want to compare two documents by putting each one on a different screen.  I have got a second Monitor and connected it correctly.  When I select and press: ' Window Button + P'  the following options appear 'Duplicate',  'Extend',  'PC only',  and 'Second Screen only'. If I press 'Duplicate' the display on both screens is identical (I don't want this).  If I press 'Extend' I find my all the icons on the PC screen's desktop disappear (a blank desktop although the taskbar displays its icons); while the Second Screen shows   this page (the Experts Exchange page on which I am writing this post). Any advice
