    Double Screen Single Monitor windows 10 (cant get to window)

    Fresh install of win 10 Pro (legal) on an old acer laptop and no drivers for win 10 so installed the OS put in LAN cable and update the OS, when it finally came back to life it would seem to have set itself up as dual monitors, ie; mouse stops when it goes up, right and down but when pushed to the left it moves over to next screen but i only have single laptop screen.

    When i right click on desktop i get the option to alter settings etc which i do but the box always come up on the left hand side of the screen which of course i can't see let alone alter any settings.

    I have tried to right and left click the icon in the toolbar at the bottom to hopefully move it but that option is not there, this is my first real move into win 10 so unsure where to go from here.

    you should see the program in task bar, select it with mouse "click it" now hold down SHIFT + WIN KEY then use the arrow keys so pressing right arrow will move program to your side if not try left arrow.
    If the program is not being selected when you click it in task bar use ALT + TAB to select it, and then HOLD "SHIFT KEY + WIN KEY" press LEFT or RIGHT to move program to your screen

    have fun

    Windows logo key + T Cycle through apps on the taskbar
    Windows logo key + Shift + Left arrow or Right arrow Move an app or window in the desktop from one monitor to another
