PC connects to Roku but only displays desktop

I easily connected my windows PC to my Roku device, but it will only show my blanks desktop background (no apps) and only the taskbar. It won't display active windows, like my browser or other apps (like Photos). Any suggestions?

Sounds like you got it in Extended mode, not Duplicate mode. Window Key + P will allow you to change that. Or you can drag and drop to the 2nd screen.
