Probably because you need to set the computer to clone the displays, instead of expanding it. Drag your window to the left or right and you should see it on your television.

Still hung up on just the desktop pic. When the curser is on the right side of my computer monitor , it's on the left side of the t.v. screen. Wonder why it just shows the desktop pic. when I have other things on my computer screen?

It's not a problem actually,it's simply a feature.
