How to set up a second monitor and see your class in Zoom on that 2nd monitor

 One of the many questions that has come up recently is how to set up a second monitor and then how to make sure the monitor displays the grid view in Zoom (we will be using Zoom in this example).

Please note - I am using the following (see picture below for ports on a 5480)

  •  Dell laptop
  • 2nd monitor is a Dell as well
  • HDMI cable
  • USB cable

A few tips about using a 2nd screen
  • Fn F8 (or just F8) will bring up options to extend your options for projecting. 
    • A reminder if your screen ever gets stuck you can always select F8 and then toggle with your up and down arrow and select. Duplicate and you will be back to duplicating the screen.

  • If you would like your screen to instantly go to a 2nd screen select the settings cog in Windows and then system - display - change from duplicate to extend.
Embedded below is a 3 minute and 46 second YouTube tutorial I created.

Take care,
