Have Duplicate dispay YES, Extended Display NO. What's up with that?

I’m using W 7 home premium. I can duplicate the display in monitor #2. However, when I set it for Extend the display, my mouse pointer will not move to the second display and while monitor #2 has the screen saver it doesn’t have any of the shortcuts etc.
