    2nd Monitor Not Opening Programs

    I am using Samsung TV (brand new) as a 2nd monitor for a ThinkPad laptop with Windows 10. I have it set to "Extend" and can see the desktop and task bar on the screen. When I open something on my laptop, it works just fine. When I try to open something on the monitor, it displays it on my laptop. Nothing will open only on my 2nd monitor. What am I doing wrong?

    Once it opens, can you drag it to second monitor ?
