You may find the computer screen “extending” rather than “duplicating” to the projection screen. This likely occurred when a previous PPT file “hijacked” the display. We’re providing a quick fix instructions here, but feel encouraged to call Teaching & Learning Technology (TLT) x4090 for assistance.
The quick fix
- With the PC and projector both turned-on, keypress the windows and “P” buttons at the same time.
- While still holding-down the windows button, press the “P” button until ‘Duplicate’ is highlighted.
- Once ‘Duplicate’ is selected, release all keys and screens should mirror. Please allow up to 10 to 20 seconds for digital connection to update.
Is there a permanent fix?
This issue is one of those bugs for which the MS Office community-at-large is working hard to find a solution. We will update this post as soon as this is resolved.
