Multiple Display Options:
Duplicate Displays: Duplicates the displays or clones them, whatever happens on one screen will show on the other exactly.
Extend Displays: Extends the displays so you can move your mouse across either screen. Notice the numbers on your monitor and you can re-arrange them to suit your needs.
