Several, including Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

Press the windows key and then p.

Presentation Mode - Change

This will give you a toolbar;

You can try various modes using that.

R-Click desktop > Screen Resolution

Make sure you click the "Make this my main display" checkbox.

In your case, the laptops screen. This will make the projector the extended display.
