Hello,

I am trying to watch a video on my tv using my laptop and an hdmi cable but how do I set it up that the movie runs in the background on my laptop so I can do other things on my laptop while it is playing on the TV?

Thank you for your help,
Alre

Hi Alre,

Go to the display options under "Personalize" (Vista/7) or "Properties" (for XP) under the right-click menu on your desktop.

From here, select the monitor (your TV). It should be plugged in from before. Then tick the box saying "Extend the desktop onto this monitor"

Good luck.
