    Macbook Pro on TV works as Dual Screen, not one.
    Hi there, just a simple question.
    How do i adjust my display on macbook Pro to just show on the TV, without using the display on the macbook.
    Because atm it works as dual screen.

    Thanks in advance

    I believe you can just mirror the displays

    You can do this by going to Apple Logo > Displays > Arrangement > Mirror Displays.

    I assume you want to close the lid on your macbook and just use your TV?
    You might need a app called caffeine to stop it from sleeping when you close the lid - here is a link Lighthead - Caffeine

    No need for another app, just dim the display on the MacBook and leave it open.
