    Question Duplicate desktop on two displays

    I have a new Lenovo ThinkPad W520 laptop connected to a ViewSonic VX2235wm monitor. I want to be able to display the desktop on both the ThinkPad display and the ViewSonic display. From the Screen Resolution window, the only choices are: Extend these displays; Show desktop only on 1; Show desktop only on 2. How do I duplicate the desktop on both displays?

    On my wife's Dell this is done with the keyboard. The function keys F1-F12 serve dual function via the FN. Thus FN+F1 cycles between Laptop - External - Both. Maybe the Leveno has a similar key combo?

    Thanks, RG. I'll check out the Lenovo Fn usage. Also, shortly after posting the original message, I found the answer on the Nvidia Control Panel Help system.
