    Hi, I'm having a unique problem. I've bought a HDMI splitter to connect two monitors to the same GPU, and it works fine - in the sense that both displays work - but it shows the same screen on both monitors.When I open Display settings, I do not have the 'multiple display' option, and when I try to detect a new monitor, it won't let me. I've done a backroll of the driver update, updated all optional updates, restarted my PC, unplugged and re-plugged the HDMIs, and I still can't extend my screens. Please help. I've done the WIN+P thing too, and it still won't work.

    :)

    Dual monitors on Windows 10

    I can't get dual monitors to even show in control panel--is there some prerequisite step or setting I need to take before getting to the step discussed here?

    Thanks,
