    External Monitor Samsung C27RG50FQN switch between inputs shortcut?


    Hello,



    Is there a way to switch between HDMI1/HDMI2/Displayport without having to touch the monitor? Perhaps a keyboard and/or mouse shortcut I can create? If so how?



    Thank you!

    :)

    Desktop shortcuts appear on external monitor instead of pc

    Hi,

    I will certainly help you with the issue you are experiencing in getting
    desktop shortcuts on your PC from External monitor.

    This issue might occur due to default settings where you are not able to view the desktop shortcuts on the PC, you are looking for.

    Before proceeding further, I would like to ask few questions for better assistance:


    • Which edition of Windows are you working with?
    Please follow below mentioned steps to fix the issue:


    • Plug in the second monitor which physically sits to the left of your primary screen

    • Right click the desktop, choose
      Graphic Options>Output To>Extended Desktop> Built-in display + Monitor.

    • Extended desktop enabled, but screen 2 (on the left) can only be accessed by moving the cursor to the right.

    • Right click the desktop and choose
      Graphic Properties - choose 'Multiple Displays' from the side menu.

    • Move monitor 2 from its default
      'Right' side to the left – all the icons go with it
      to screen 2 but the taskbar stays on the primary monitor.

    • Click 'Apply' to accept this (temporarily) - close the
      'properties' window.

    • Right Click the desktop, but this time choose
      'Screen Resolution'. Ensure that screen 2 is to the left - if not, move it.

    • Click on screen 1 and ensure it says
      'This is currently your main display'

    • Click on screen 2 and tick the box that says
      'Make this my main display' - the taskbar should move to screen 2.

    • Finally click on Screen 1 again and tick the box that says
      'Make this my main display' - the taskbar and
      all the icons should move back to screen 1.
    I would like to Inform/suggest, Press the
    Windows key + P, and then choose a way to project:


    • PC screen only
      – All your desktop shortcuts will be seen only on primary monitor/Desktop.

    • Duplicate- Desktop Shortcuts that is on primary monitor/Desktop will replicate on Secondary monitor too.

    • Extend- Primary monitor will be extended to Secondary monitor. But all the desktop shortcuts will appear only on primary monitor. (If you want to have the desktop
      shortcuts that’s on primary monitor on secondary monitor, you can just drag the shortcuts from primary to secondary monitor and check if that helps).

    • Second screen only- All your desktop shortcuts will be seen only on Secondary monitor/Desktop.
    Please get back to us, if you still facing issue
    in getting desktop shortcuts on your PC from External monitor.

    Thank you.

    Hi Robert,

    It is possible that you're experiencing issues with your external monitors due to corrupted or outdated drivers. To assist you better, I'd like to gather more information:
