If you’re a proud owner of an HP Chromebook, you might have noticed that it doesn’t come with the traditional HDMI or VGA ports. Instead, your Chromebook features two USB C ports that you can use to connect your external devices, including monitors. However, if your monitor doesn’t have a USB C port, you’ll need to purchase a converter to take it from HDMI to USB C.
Once you have your converter and HDMI cable ready, you can start connecting your Chromebook to your monitor. Simply plug in the converter, then the cable to your monitor, and it should start talking to each other automatically. However, you might need to go to your monitor settings to have it look for this new device.
By default, your Chromebook will set up two separate displays, allowing you to work on two screens simultaneously. But you might prefer to have the same screen displayed on both your Chromebook and your external monitor. To do this, you need to go to your control panel, click on the settings gear, and then click on “Displays.”
From there, you’ll see the two monitors you’re using. Click on the option that says “Mirror internal display,” and voila! You now have the same display on both screens.
Connecting your HP Chromebook to an external monitor is easy and convenient. With just a few simple steps, you can enjoy browsing the web, streaming videos, and working on a bigger screen.
