Available ConnectionsThe monitor has no computing capability or internet connection by itself, but will need to be plugged into a power outlet. Any laptop should work. We have connections for Thunderbolt 3 / USB-C, Thunderbolt 2 / Mini DisplayPort, and HDMI.
How to Connect
- Look at the side of your device for available video-out hookups. Use the guide on the monitor stand to find your connection type.
- Connect your device. Upon connecting, your screen should appear automatically.
- If you use a laptop and your screen has not appeared, try the following commands:
Apple: Command + P Windows: Windows key + P Chromebook: Ctrl + Full Screen key
