The older X system is not great when it comes to "multi-head" setups.
You can check whether you are in X (and not Wayland) by seeing if the
eyes in xeyes (from the xeyes package) follow your mouse. If they do,
you can use xrandr from the xrandr package to configure your screens.

Any graphical program you may be using in XFCE likely calls xrandr, as well.

Kind regards
