  • Assuming your monitors are connected to two different video outputs on hardware that supports the "independent" use do this  - Press Win P  (Hold down the windows key and press P).  On the screen that pops up select Extend.

    If that doesn't work for you, please explain your configuration.

  • Some laptops are capable of using two monitor with an extended desktop.  Some can only mirror (duplicate) video.  If you really "tried everything" your unspecified laptop is probably one of the latter.  The suggestion to use multiple desktops is a good work around.
