I have to see users struggle to connect to their laptops to the projector. Most laptop vendors provide a hotkey (e.g., Function + F8 is to switch between laptop screen and projector) and it mostly works. When it doesn’t work, user usually lost.
In Windows 7, I would say press Windows ÿ key + P. You get the following choices. Select the one that works for you. It’s that easy.
One thought on “Windows 7: Connect your Laptop to Projector or second monitor”
I use this constantly. I have my laptop perpetually hooked up to my 22 inch acer monitor for work or my 42 inch toshiba hdtv for movies. I can definitely say life is better with 42 inches of extended desktop haha. http://unknownrebellion.blogspot.com
