4.) Select the monitor icon which says 2 i.e. the icon for the second monitor. Click on the checkbox which says “Extend my Windows desktop onto this computer”.

5.) Click on Apply and press OK. Now you are all set to work with your Two monitors. 

Follow the above process to setup any number of monitors your computer supports.

If you select the checkbox which says “ Use this device as primary” , your new monitor will be the primary monitor. This is useful if you work on a laptop but would always prefer working on a larger screen.

The only issue with default Multi Monitor setup is that Windows will not extend the TaskBar to the other monitors and all windows will be shown on the single windows taskbar on a primary monitor. In order to get rid of this problem, i would suggest you download and install MultiMon Taskbar.
