    Steps to set Macbook primary screen to Dell Monitor?

    Recently my Macbook screen got damaged and now I can barely see with it. So I bought a Dell external monitor to connect to my Macbook and view the output from it but the problem is whenever I try to connect , it just goes as the secondary screen which in sense the main screen is still my Macbook and the extended desktop is the monitor but I want the monitor to be the only output and I am not able to get that. Can you please provide me the steps to follow for getting it done? Thanks.

    Hello Guest, I think your external monitor is not configured properly. So first of all connect your monitor to your macbook via VGA or HDMI cable. Then use the shortcut Command+F1 to mirror the screens.

    These keys are placed in your Mac default Keyboard.

    Press the shortcut again and again to select different modes.
