    Your screenshot shows you have selected extended but not applied it. Click Apply, thereafter you can select resolution independently for both displays.

    That's the whole idea of the extended desktop. You can drag browser, an application or File Explorer window (almost any item) to the secondary display as you wish. Keep browser on display 1 while watching a video on display 2 for instance. Here's a short video, my laptop's display (#1) at left, resolution 1600*900, and at right an external display (#2), resolution 1920*1080:

    thanks but i seem not drag anything,your video do not show all the settings so i can do the same.

    Also my pc only has max resolution 1366x768 and the resolution that best fill the TV screen is 1280x720 with a little of the wedge cut off , so i will not benefit doing extended monitors besides be able to browse the web on monitor one and watch stream or whatever on monitor 2,
    my primer wish was to fit the pic in the tv not cut off edges, but it seems with integrated intel HD 4500 video card will not put out resolution 1920x1080, with amd Ati cards you can at least in Ubuntu 14.04 install Ati software then it makes it fit the screen no matter what. so the fault lays on the Intel HD4500 software drivers in win

    1. Bring the pointer over the titlebar of the window you want to drag
    2. Press and hold down the left mouse button
    3. Drag the window to secondary display
    4. Release the mouse button

    Thanks kari, i was able to do the extended monitor and get 1920x1080 resolution but i have the over scan that doesn't let me control monitor 2 ,since i have to set it to monitor 2 only to obtain 1920x1080, the overscan will not let me use the controls.


    Also i found this info, this seems to be too hard for me!,is this doable on Intel 4500 Video card on my HP DV-6 1259DX?
