Windows key + Shift + Left key (or right key)
if you only have 2 monitors it won't matter thou. If you have 3 or 4, then it will move the active window to the left (or right window)

if you have more slots you can, you could also buy extension, but depending on your graphic card if it can handle it too.

With my pc, it is simple. Press and hold the "fn" key, then press "f4" This may cause your computer screen to blackout...just do it again to view it on both screens. Enjoy

I have an unusual problem. My laptop fell and the monitor is shot. I bought a stand alone monitor to use while I transferred data from it to the new one. The other day I started it up and now I can't get the monitor to connect. It says it's in power save mode and to simply touch a key to restore. That doesn't work. I tried the Fn+F4 key...no luck. Any ideas?
