You have to clone it...I think you need to have Extend my windows desktop on this monitor unchecked to have it cloned..

If you want seperate start menus but still have the extended screen realestate (ie: you want one monitor to have a spreadsheet, and the other to have a word documet), then I really do not think that you can.

If you were to clone it (as Warez suggested), it the primary and the secondary will show the same thing.
