Windows – What is the Hotkey to Extend my Desktop to Dual Monitor?

{More Shortcuts Here}

KB ID 0000162 Dtd 25/03/13

Problem

If (Like me) you dock your laptop with various monitor configurations, there is a tendency for the Laptop to assume you want “Cloned Monitors” when what you actually want is an “Extended Desktop.”

Solution

Annoyingly simple – Press the “Windows Key” and P.

Win and P

Windows 7 Extend Monitor

Extend Monitor Hotkey

Then select as appropriate.

Windows 8 Extend Monitor

Extend Monitor Hotkey

Then select as appropriate.
