why does the Operating System (Windows 7) not have all the features of the normal Windows 7 O.S.? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to extend my laptop to two monitors. The Operating System (Windows 7) is not showing me all the functionality of the O.S. When I go to the Control Panel and select connect an external display the dialog box only duplicates the same image from the laptop to the external display. I need the external display two extend, so that I have two screens.

    The desktop extension feature is not supported in the Starter Edition of Windows 7: if you're running that edition, you cannot use that feature.
