I just got a Tronsmart minipc running Windows 10, but I cannot see my desktop icons or windows when I connect the minipc to another TV.


When I connect it back to the original TV, it shows up just fine. But whenever I connect it to the other TV, I lose all my desktop icons, and I cannot open any windows, as if Win10 still believes my windows (such as Settings-window) is still on the other monitor/TV - which is not connected (as they are in different rooms).


How do I get to display my open windows and my desktop on all TVs which is connected to the minipc?


In Display settings it is already set to "Duplicate" but it is as if it is just extended, which I did not set it too. It is definetly set to Duplicate.




I solved it myself. Right click on your desktop, click on Graphics Options/Properties-> Output (or similar) -> Digital TV. It now displays the digital tv full screen.
