Changing T410 multi-screen setting

2019-06-01, 13:29 PM

My T410 User Guide says to change the multiscrren setting via Presentation Manager, but I can't see anything like Presentation Manager.  Pressing Fn-F7 does nothing. The present setting is that when I plug in Screen 2, Screen 1 goes dark, but I want both screens to be active.

Solved! See the solution

What OS are you running?  Sounds like you need Presentation Director?  Your laptop has been EOL(End of Life) but you can get Presentation Director from EOL site below.  There are no newer software from Lenovo other than whats at the below site.  There is no support either.

I am running Windows 10. Luckily, it runs on such an aged computer. But there is no Presentation Manager for Windows10, of course. Is ther perhaps a registry edit or something like that, which would enable Fn-F7, or at least allow both screens to be in use?

I have found that Windows key + P allows me to change the settings, so the problem is solved.

This helped me too

Glad it worked out for you.  You beat me to it.  I was going to refer you to the below site next.   You can also choose Action Center then project if the keyboard shortcut didn't work for some reason.
