Take a look in "monitors" in the mint menu, otherwise, try pressing the relevant button on your laptop keyboards, e.g. mine is Fn+F4
Please go through the steps here when posting a question. Once your question has been resolved, edit the original question post and add [Solved] to the subject. Both of these will help others use the forum effectively.
