Can I use an extended display with my MacBook?


I bought the "Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter" and hooked it up to a standard Dell monitor. When I try to set up the extended monitor in System preferences/hardware/displays, I do not see the expected "arrange multiple display" option and when I search for extended displays, I get a message that says:

"The Arrangement tab of Displays preferences is hidden because you only have a single display attached to this computer."

MacBook, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)
