Windows 8 has the same shortcut to connect to a projector as prior versions of Windows. However, the interface is brand new.
You’ll see a new screen slide into view from the right side.
You’re presented with four different options.
This disables the projector and allows the information to be seen only on the PC’s monitor.
Everything you do on the monitor will be mirrored on the projected screen.
The projector acts as an extended desktop, allowing you to move windows from the PC’s screen on to it and vice versa.
This disables your PC’s monitor and allows the display to only appear on the projected screen.
Note that these options only work when connected to a projector. They have no function when connected to an external monitor.
