How to share my laptop screen to another monitor: a step-by-step guide

Sharing your laptop screen with another monitor can be a great way to increase your productivity. Whether you’re giving a presentation or just want to have a second display to work with, sharing your screen is easy to do. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to share your laptop screen with another monitor.

1. Connect your laptop to the other monitor.

If you’re using a VGA cable, plug it into the VGA port on your laptop. If you’re using an HDMI cable, plug it into the HDMI port on your laptop. If you’re using a DVI cable, plug it into the DVI port on your laptop.

2. Once your laptop is connected to the other monitor, you’ll need to configure your display settings.

On a Windows PC, right-click on the desktop and select “Screen Resolution.” On a Mac, go to System Preferences and click on “Displays.”

3. In the Display Settings window (on a PC) or the Displays window (on a Mac), you’ll see a list of all the displays that are connected to your computer. Select the one that you want to use as your primary display.

4. In the Display Settings window (on a PC) or the Displays window (on a Mac), you’ll see an option to “Extend these displays.” Select this option and then click “Apply.”

5. Your laptop screen will now be extended to the other monitor. You can drag windows and applications to the other monitor and use it just like you would your primary monitor.

6. To stop sharing your screen, go back to the Display Settings window (on a PC) or the Displays window (on a Mac) and deselect the “Extend these displays” option. Click “Apply” and your laptop screen will go back to normal.
