Can I run 2 monitors from laptop spread over both screens

Specs: Windows 10
Hi I have a laptop and 2 x desktop monitors. One is connected to laptop via HDMI and other via DVI. Can I still use the spread across both monitors using the windows 10 set up as I dont want to duplicate it and wondered if it would work as it connected via 2 different means.

Generally laptops can only connect to one additional monitor and that being a copy of the built in monitor.
That said it is remotely possible that if the machine has a distinct graphics card built in then it may be possible but I have not seen it yet.
Since you have the monitors and the connections already, it cannot hurt to try it. Once they are plugged in you right click on your desktop and select Display Settings. If there is a multiple monitor set up then that is where you will find it and its options.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
