As Jaime Davila said, it's likely a matter of a function key.  I did
this for the first time a few weeks ago, using an IBM/Lenovo ThinkPad,
and it was Fn+F7.  Note that you may need to a) wait a few seconds after
the keypress for the change to take effect, b) press it a few times, as
it cycles through a few display options (for me showing only on the
computer screen, showing only on the projector, and showing on both
screens), and c) making sure the projector is set to stay looking for a
signal from a connected computer.  If it is cycling looking for any kind
of connection it may have a very difficult time finding your computer in
any satisfactory time frame.
