Extended Monitors on aq PC

Last Modified: 2019-01-18
On my Laptop, if I want to use TWO monitors that are extensions of each other, I hold down the Fn Key and click F8.

How does one do the same on a DESKTOP PC running Windows 10 Pro.  (I have done it countless times in Win 7) I thought I tried everything, obviously I did not!

Can anyone help?!

It is indeed WIn+P, provided your graphics card supports extended desktops. Assume you already tested it without the key combo already, right? (By going through the old fashioned way of going to the display settings in Setttings or Control Panel?)
