Laptop screen and TV screen won't display at same time with HDMI

I installed an HDMI cable to my laptop (Dell Inspiron P09E) for video playing. I can make videos play on the P09E screen or on the TV, but not on both at the same time. I have tried Extend and Duplicate without success.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Garrett,

Thank you for the info about simultaneous screens from laptop to TV using HDMI, but I couldn't

get your instructions to work on Windows 10. Do you have specific instructions for Windows 10?

I believe this would have been any easy fix on earlier Windows. Thank you, kenb7@hotmail.com
