  1. unable to extend dual monitor while signed in remotely


    Hello-

    I have set up dual monitors to extend with my laptop and another monitor. This works perfectly until I sign into work remotely- than I am not able to extend the remote session over the two monitors???

    I have windows 10 home and my work uses window 10 pro-- does this prevent me from doing that?


    Please help!!


    Thank you,

    Lindsay
