Windows 10: Second screen? Solved

    Second screen?


    Hello. I had two monitors functioning nicely under Windows 7. Then I upgraded to 10 and now it can't detect my second monitor. I haven't touched the hardware at all. The only thing I did was upgrade. How do I get it to notice my other monitor?

    What graphics card(s) are you using?

    Try pressing the Windows key and P and select Extend

    My graphics driver updated itself without me having to do anything except restart. I logged in to Google the driver, and found all it needed was a restart. Once I'd done this I magically had two screens again.
