    You can configure a second monitor or TV for using Windows 7 to greatly enhance the user experience with applications. A second monitor can be used to show an application such as your inbox, or a spreadsheet for example whilst the other monitor is used for other tasks within Windows 7.

    Here is how you configure a second monitor in Windows 7

    • Click the Windows 7 Start Button
    • Click on Control Panel
    • Click Appearance and Personalization
    • Click Adjust Screen Resolution
    • Select the drop-down box next to Multiple Displays
    • Click Extend these displays and then select OK

    If you do not have an option for Multiple Displays in the drop down menu then Windows 7 has not detected a second monitor setup on your PC.
