My laptop is connected to the monitors you see above via a
Sony usb docking station.
This docking station was not suitable for use with Windows 10.
By finding and installing the right software and connecting one of the monitors via the VGA portal on my laptop* i was able to connect both monitors to my laptop.
* Connect the first screen to your laptop's VGA or HDMI jack and the second to the dock station.

Click on siinst.exe to install.
Go to Device Manager and click on SONY VGP-UPR. And then navigate to the folder with that software.
For the SONY

Restart the machine.
Click anywhere on the desktop with the right mouse button and click on display settings.
On the left should
be the desktop and on the right an empty screen.
You can change the screens in the display settings.
If the desktop remains on the right and a blank screen on the left, change the cables.
It's a bit of a struggle with the display settings and cables.
You can also change the resolution of each screen so that you get a full screen.
