Default Laptop screen not appearing on whiteboard

Earlier this morning, what appeared on my laptop screen, powerpoints and word documents, was showing up fine on a whiteboard via a data projector. I was using a HDMI to VGA cable to connect the laptop to the data projectors VGA cable. Suddenly it's not working anymore, all that shows up on the whiteboard now is the desktop screen background, even though I might have a powerpoint open on the laptop screen. Any help really appreciated.

Hi Johnnie, sounds like your projector is showing an extension of your desktop, rather than mirroring what's on the laptop screen. Try dragging the powerpoint window off the right or left side of your screen, as if there's another one linked to it.

If you're on Windows, press Win + P (windows key on keyboard is left of spacebar, between Ctrl & Alt) and this is a quick access to cycle through the options for how your laptop sends video signal to screen & projector.
