    screen projection

    Hi, What I'm want to know is:

    How can I project the pc game window as one screen, and keep my desktop/windows screens as an other.

    Basicity I want to run a pc game and project the display to my tv, whilst keeping otherwise normal pc functionality on my laptop.

    • Extend desktop to TV
    • Make it (display 2, the TV) main display in Settings > Display
    • In Settings, go to Personalisation > Taskbar, unselect Show Taskbar on all displays
    • Taskbar will now be shown only on TV. Right click it on an empty spot, uncheck Lock the Taskbar
    • Move Taskbar to laptop display (drag it with mouse left button)
    • Right click Taskbar, check Lock the Taskbar

    That's it. Your TV is now your main display, but without Taskbar, full screen games opening on it. Laptop will be extended display, showing Taskbar to allow you to do other stuff on it.
