I would like to connect my laptop to my LCD with a VGA cable. I detected my lcd screen, it displays the background image but it does not put the desktop icon

what to do?

Is that you must be in "extended desktop". (so that your external screen is seen as an extension of the main screen, in general a "right")

If you want to see the icons, you must save mode "clone" but the resolution should be the same on 2 screens. (which can cause problems for one of the two screens)
