I currently have 1 external monitor connected to my HP Pavilion Laptop 15-cs1xxx and I use my laptop screen and the external monitor as two separate screens.  Is there anyway of connecting a second external monitor to my laptop?  I don't want to have 3 screens, I just want to use the two external monitors as the two screens and not use my laptop screen.  I don't know how to connect the second monitor though, I only have 1 HDMI port and no VGA port.

Get one of those cheap WiFi dongles.  Microsoft sells one.  It plugs into the HDMI port on the monitor and the laptop connects to it using Miracast


Your system will need to support Miracast as described here.  Most systems support it including Macbooks.
