I have both set up thru Windows key + "P" and have used the EXTEND. But nothing shows me how to switch between my laptop monitor and my external monitor.

You don't switch. If extend worked then you now have 1 large desktop so you would just move your mouse over to the 2nd display as if you had one really wide display. I believe W10's default is to set the extended display on the right hand side of the main (so you would move the mouse off the right end of the main display to get it onto the 2nd one).

If you wish to change that then rt click on an empty part of the desktop and select Display Setting. From there you can drag the 2nd monitor to match how you have it setup on your desk. You can even move it above/below the main display if that's what you need
