Additional Information

You can set which mode to display your image, from your computer. If using a Windows laptop, push the Windows + P key, to choose between Extend and Duplicate. On a Macbook, click the Apple icon > System Preferences > Displays > Arrangement, and check the box which says “Mirror Display”.

 

When extended, the projection will act as an additional screen you can drag stuff to, whereas duplicate will mirror what is already on your computer screen.
