    Dual Monitors - Win10 displays on Deselected Monitor


    I fear I won't describe my problem, but here goes:

    I have two monitors, my laptop screen and a 2nd monitor. When I watch Foxtel, it displays on the external monitor, accessed via HDMI 1 port. My laptop feeds into the external monitor via the Display Port.

    My problem occurs when access my laptop, and programs seem to remember where they last displayed, and try to display to a non selected display.

    An example. I am watching Foxtel via HDMI on the external screen. At the same time I am using my laptop to access, say, email. I fire up Chrome and it tries to display on the external monitor that happens to be displaying Foxtel. I can ALT Tab and see that my browser is on the external monitors.

    Is there a way, on my laptop, to tell it to display all output to my laptop screen?

    Regards,
    Doug

    Press the Windows Logo key and the P key, then select PC screen only. Everything will show on the one monitor.
    When you want dual display Press the Windows Logo key and the P key, then select Extend.
