Resolved Question

My hdmi tv doesnt work with my computer

by Pedr02 / March 16, 2018 12:42 PM PDT

I use a display port to connect my monitor to my computer and recently I connected my tv to my pc using a hdmi cable but the only image that I had was from the wallpaper(no aplications), from the bar with the aplications and network and all that(and that worked, when I openned a app like google chrome it showed up), and the sound also works.
When I try to open, for exemple, google chrome and I want to see a video the image that shows on the monitor is from youtube but on the tv its the wallpaper.
How can I fix that

Here no fix was needed.

I had to sit with the client and show them that the mouse cursor goes from one screen to another. Then showed how to drag apps, both the shortcut and app running to the other screens. Takes practice from what I see.

I thought I had only the same screen but it was in both the tv and on the monitor
