Hello everyone.
Windows 10, Firefox.
I am hoping someone can help me.
When projecting my laptop screen onto my TV via 'extend' everything works just fine, but when i then open a shortcut on my laptop it opens on my TV over the top of what i am streaming instead of on my laptop. This did not happen when i was an IE user. Is this normal for Firefox or is there a setting i have missed ?
I opened IE to test if i have changed a computer setting but it functioned how i expected- open site, drag page to TV, maximise on TV, computer screen shows desktop, open shortcut and it opens on computer rather than on TV like Firefox.
Any suggestions ?
