connet external monitor to Hp ENVY

ENVY 17T - n000 CTO
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want to attach a remote display to my system.  I have been looking for an adapter to allow hdmi to my usb-c port, but the adapters I have seen   require displayport alt mode, which I understand the envy does not have.

 

Has anyone sucessfully done this, and with what adapter?

So the monitor has a USB-C port not the laptop? The laptop cannot be made to have an alt-DP signal onto a USB-C cable. and a monitor with a USB-C input port requires that to work.  Does the monitor have any  other incoming ports?

Yes the laptop has an HDMI v. 1.4 port. HDMI male to male connection will drive an HDMI monitor.

Was I ever confused! So I just need to plug hdmi cable that comes with the monitor to my hdmi port and I am good to go?

Thanks so much if that is all there is to it.

Yes that is all there is to it. Then hit the Windows key + p and configure the image on the external monitor. Mirror, extend, etc.
