Thank you for posting on HP Support Community.


You can connect your Chromebook to a monitor or TV with an HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI, or VGA port.

Sometimes you need an adapter cable to do this. To learn what type of cable you need, check the instructions included with your Chromebook.

  1. Find the display output and input ports on your Chromebook. (If you’re not sure which ports to use, check the instructions included with your Chromebook.)
  2. Use these two ports to find the correct adapter (ex. DisplayPort to HDMI).
  3. Plug the adapter into the monitor, then into your Chromebook.

Show your Chromebook screen on your monitor

  1. At the bottom right, select the time.
  2. Select Settings .
  3. In the "Device" section, select Displays.
  4. Select Mirror Internal Display. Your screen will show on all connected monitors.

Tip: To view your Chromebook screen only on your monitor, press and hold Decrease brightness 


Adjust your screens:

  1. At the bottom right, select the time.
  2. Select Settings .
  3. In the "Device" section, select Displays.
  4. To adjust your Chromebook screen, select Internal Display. To adjust your monitor screen, select the name of the monitor.
    • Make items on your screen smaller or larger: In the "Display size" section, choose an option.
    • Rotate the screen: In the "Orientation" section, choose an option.
  5. [Optional] Under your monitor tab, you can also:
    • Change screen sharpness: In the "Resolution" section, choose an option.

Tip: To quickly move windows or apps from one screen to another, on your keyboard, press Search  Alt + m.
