  2. Windows 10 Multiple Display NOT Working

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    I suggest you to update the display drivers and then try to set up multiple monitors.

    I suggest you to update the Graphics card drivers and check if it helps:

    • Click on 'Start' and type 'Device Manager' in the start search box and press enter.
    • Click on the “Display adapters” to expand the list.
    • Right-click on drivers and update it.
    • If there are no update available, then go ahead and reinstall the driver by clicking on 'Uninstall'.
    • Restart the PC
    Connect a second monitor or projector
