How can I force the PC to display on both the monitor and the projector?

If the PC display is not appearing on both the monitor and projector, it is possible that the device is in Extended mode. To return the device display output to Duplicate mode, hold down the Windows Key and press P. This will bring up a display settings menu, usually with four options.

The four options are:

PC Screen Only - Only shows on the monitor

Duplicate - Shows the same picture on monitor and projector

Extend - Uses the monitor and the projector as two discrete displays

Second Screen Only - Only shows on the projector

You will want to select Duplicate and press Enter (or click on it). This will cause your screen to blink momentarily as it sets up the displays to copy one another.
