How do I go from dual monitor back to the single monitor setup?

    I have a Dell Inspiron 9300 with an ATI Mobility Radeon X300 with
    128MB. Before I started using a dual monitor setup, I was able to
    display my desktop or a program I was running on the built in display,
    on an external display, or on both by using the "Fn F8" control on the
    keyboard.

    I changed to a dual monitor display and extended my desktop onto the
    second monitor. I now have a need to go back to the original
    configuration and, specifically, need to be able to display a running
    program on the built in display AND on the external monitor (in other
    words, i need both to show the same thing). I have unchecked the
    "Extend Desktop" option and I can toggle between the internal display
    and the external display by using "Fn F8". However, when I activate
    both displays, I can only see the desktop on the primary display.

    What am I missing?
