Hello, I have a Dell Inspiron N5110. It is running on Windows 10. I am trying to connect the laptop to my TV via HDMI. I want the TV to mirror whats running on my laptop.

When I connect the HDMI cable from TV to Laptop, the TV simply mirrors my laptop screen and turns my laptop into an extension of the screen.

While checking the Display Settings, this is how it appears.

As you can see, the option is to duplicate those two displays. However, the problem is that when I click on "Identify", the number 3 appears on the TV screen and 1|2 appears on the laptop screen.

In my case, the TV screen becomes the Main screen and my laptop screen becomes the extension of the Main screen.
