  1. Switching displays


    I often switch my display from my computer monitor to my TV screen by selecting Extend these Displays in Display Settings.

    There are two different ways this will work:

    1. All screen contents i.e., all open windows, and controls switch to the alternate screen, i.e., TV screen, and Keep Changes appears on the TV screen.

    2. All screen contents and controls remain on main screen, computer monitor, and Keep Changes appears on that screen. Once you click on Keep Changes you can move whatever Windows you want to the alternate (TV) screen. Normally I am only moving one window to the TV screen and I want to keep everything else on my computer monitor.


    This has always worked according to the No. 1 scenario until I had a problem with Windows and had to reinstall or recover it. When Windows was re-installed Extend These Displays worked like option 2, which is my preference and is much easier to use.

    However, at some point it reverted back to option 1, and I haven't been able to find any setting to change it back to option 2.

    Where is the control to switch between these two options?

    How do I change Display Settings - Extend These Displays to work according to Option 2.

    :)

    Apps stop updating the display after switching to tablet mode

    Hello,

    Thank you for keeping us posted.

    As per the description, I understand that you are experiencing issue with apps stop updating the display after switching to tablet mode.

    I certainly understand your concern and will try my best to help you.

    I really appreciate all your efforts in trying to fix the issue.

    There is a possibility, that this issue might have occurred due to corrupt display drivers on the system.

    I would suggest you to try the following methods and check if that helps.

    Method 1:

    Run inbuilt Hardware & Device troubleshooter


    Let’s try running inbuilt Hardware and Devices troubleshooter to get the problem automatically detected and fixed. It checks for common issues and makes sure that any new device or hardware attached to your computer was installed
    correctly.


    • Press Windows + W keys on your keyboard to get the search option.

    • Type Troubleshooting and click
      Troubleshooting.

    • Now click on view all option.

    • Click on Hardware and Device and follow the prompts to run the troubleshooter.
    If the issue persists, follow method 2

    Method 2:

    Step 1: Update the Display driver.
    Please follow the steps given below to update the display driver.


    • Click Start and go to
      Run.

    • In Device Manager
      expand Display adapters.

    • Right-click the display driver and click
      Update Driver Software.

    • Select Search Automatically for Updated Driver Software.
    Step 2: Check if there are any updates for display drivers available in Optional Updates; this might fix the issue. Refer to the following steps.


    • At the Start screen, type Windows Update.

    • Click or tap Settings on the right side of the screen, and then select Install optional updates from the left results.

    • When the Windows Update control panel opens, click on “Check for Updates” on the top left corner to receive a fresh list of updates.
    Step 3: If the issue persists, I would suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the Display driver. Please follow the steps mentioned below to uninstall the display driver.


    • Open Device Manager.

    • Expand Display adapters.

    • Right-click the display card driver and click
      Uninstall.

    • Windows will prompt you to confirm the device’s removal. Click OK to remove the driver.

    • After the un-installation is complete, reboot your computer as soon as possible.
    Computer will load the generic display drivers. Now, please go to the manufacturer’s website, download and install the compatible display card drivers for your computer and check.

    You may also refer to the following website below to download the drivers for the Graphics card.

    Download Drivers.

    Note: The above steps holds good for Windows 10 as well.

    I hope this information is helpful.
