Using the Windows + P “Project” Menu


To quickly change how Windows 10 handles multiple displays, press Windows + P.

A dark-gray menu titled “Project” will pop up on the right part of your screen. (That’s “project” as in projector, not “project” as in a task people work on together.)

Choose Project Options in Windows 10

From here, you can use the mouse or cursor keys and Enter to choose the option you’d like. Here’s what the options do:

  • PC screen only: This mode only shows video on the primary display, even if a second one is connected.
  • Duplicate: This mode duplicates the video output from the primary display onto a second display, which can be ideal for presentations.
  • Extend: This mode extends the desktop across as many displays as you have connected. It stitches them all into one large virtual desktop
  • Second screen only: This mode only shows video on the second display, while the primary display remains blank and unused.
