    Dual monitor problem

    Hi, I have a laptop now running Windows 10 and a second 24" Dell monitor. Since the Win10 update I have not been able to drag anything to my second monitor. The cursor moves to both monitors but everything opens only on the main screen. I checked the monitor set up and the laptop is screen 1 and the additional monitor is screen 2. Does anyone know what might have happened? Thanks:)

    In "Control Panel > Display > Change display settings > Multiple displays" do both monitors read "Extend desktop to this display"?
    In "Control Panel > Device Manager > Monitors" are both monitors working properly?
    In the Action Center (Notifications) is Tablet Mode grayed out?

    Yes, but while checking those settings I stumbled onto my problem. Thanks for your help!
