2 monitors connected, but how can i use the second?

Right now it's on "extend these displays". But it's not working like how I want it to.

 

I want to use the second monitor as its own thing. Right now when I click on google on the second monitor, it pops up only on the first monitor.

By opening google do you mean clicking the pinned chrome icon on the taskbar? Once chrome opens, you can click and hold on the top of the window and drag it on to the second monitor.

I hooked up both monitors on 1 PC. First monitor is on the Graphics card for RX 580 and second is on the 3200G apu. I finally got the second monitor to work.

 

So now, how do I use the second monitor? Do I need another keyboard and mouse or if not, how  can I use the same mouse to hover on both screens simultaneously?

So do you want to duplicate or extend the displays?

And why not just plug both into the GPU?
