How do I extend monitors?

If both your laptop and the external monitor show the same image, you will need to "extend the screens". There is a keyboard shortcut that you can use, or go through screen settings. We will show you both solutions here.

To be able to perform testings all icons in the upper right corner of the Testing Application need to be green. This includes the icon for the external monitor. If this icon appears red, and you have the same view on the external monitor as the PC/Laptop, you need to extend your screens. 

Here are two suggestions on how to extend screens:

  1. Hold down the ‘Windows key’ on your laptop/PC and then click ‘P’, (⊞ + ​​P).

  2. Some options will appear on the right side of the screen, select Extend.

Alternatively, you can do this in the Testing Application by:

  1. Click the red icon within the Testing Application. Select Display Settings.
  2. It will take you to your computer's settings. Under Multiple displays, ensure Extend these displays is selected.
Once you have completed one of these actions, the Testing Application control screen should appear on laptop/PC and the pupil screen should be white with the Lexplore logo in the middle.
