How can I connect 2 external monitors to the HP Pavilion Laptop 15-cs3721nd?
Eventhough this datasheet (https://www8.hp.com/h20195/v2/GetPDF.aspx/c06472706.pdf (In Dutch)) says it has USB-C Thunderbolt, it does not. It's just USB-C for data transfer, as it says in the specs.
The specs for the external ports say:
1 USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-C™ (Data Transfer Only, 5 Gb/s signaling rate); 2 USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A (Data Transfer Only); 1 AC smart pin; 1 HDMI 1.4b; 1 headphone/microphone combo; 1 RJ-45
All the USB port support 'Data Transfer Only'.
So (how) can I connect a second display (extent the desktop not duplicate)? The first display is connected to the HDMI port.
I've seen a "sollution" on the forum (https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c04641829) but that only explains how to add screens but I know how to do that, I first need a way for the laptop to recognize the second display.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

@Mike_112, Welcome to the HP Support Community!
You will have to use a HDMI splitter. USB type-c is used for data transfer.
For more info on USB type-c, refer to this document - Using USB Type-C to Transfer Power and Data

Thank you Kumar for your response.
Wouldn't a HDMI splitter do exectly that, split the signal ergo duplicate the desktop?
I'm looking to extend the desktop....could a HDMI to USB 3.1 adapter be a sollution ?
DisplayLink device worked for me - my topic - https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Video-Display-and-Touch/Connecting-two-Monitors-to-laptop/m-p...
In your case u can search for analogical but with USB-C
Did this, bought the exact same thing from amazon.de https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B01C6HBJOA works great.
Thanks for the answer!
