    Right click on your desktop, Then click properties and then settings. Once in settings click were it says advanced, Then there should be a couple tabs at the top click one that says somthing about your graphics i.e (intel(R) graphics Media Accelerator Driver ) and then click somthing like i.e (Graphics Properties) And just pick how you would like the other monitor to be set up. :)

    I havent slept yet and it's 8:00 AM here soo if this dosent make any sence bare with me haha.
