Windows 7: Default settings for display

Default settings for display

Not sure this is the right place for this thread, if not, sorry in advance.

I'd like Win7 to default to 'Extend these displays' under the 'Multiple displays:' setting when I dock my laptop. Anyone know how to do that? It used to work in XP, but I can't get 7 to do it so I have to manually change it every time I dock my machine...

Thanks!

What happens if you just leave it set that way? That is what I usually do on my desktop.

I leave it set, but if I take the laptop home, work without external monitors, then return to the office and dock it, it reverts back to only using the 1 external monitor and I have to change the settings to tell it to extend to the 2nd monitor.
