Projector Not Displaying What Is On My Computer Screen

Symptoms:

You attempt to present something that you have open on your computer screen to your projector, but you only see a blank background on the projector screen and not what you are trying to present.

Cause:

Your computer is set to "Extend" your display when connected to a second screen rather than "Duplicate" the display.

Resolution:

Press and hold the "Windows" key on your keyboard, while holding the "Windows Key" tap or press the letter "P" on the keyboard and you will see a menu appear on the right-hand side of your screen, continue pressing the letter "P" until you have "Duplicate" highlighted.  You can then release both keys and your presentation should be visible on both your computer screen as well as the projector.
