Default Switching Monitor screens

Does anyone know what keys you use to switch from my computer monitor to a
TV screen?

Dual screen or do you mean replacing your existing monitor by a TV screen?
Check your video card which perhaps has an applet in the Control Panel.
Alternatively, right click on the desktop, select Properties | Settings |
Advanced and look there for an appropriate tab. If dual display you can
then choose to either mirror the monitor to the TV or alternatively run as
a second screen and extend the desktop across the two.

The video input signals used by standard television sets are
completely different from and not compatible with the video produced
by standard computer video cards.

Your video card need to have specific "TV Out" capabilities
incorporated into it. The instructions that come with the video card
will also describe what additional cables and/or connectors you need
in order to connect the card to your television set.

Good luck
