Connect Your Chromebook Pro to an External Monitor

You can connect an external monitor to use multiple screens or to project your screen onto a larger display. If you want to connect to a TV, you may be able to cast the screen onto a cast compatible TV.

Depending on your external monitor, you will need either an HDMI and USB C-Type cable, or an HDMI cable with a USB C-Type adapter.

Connect a Monitor

  1. Connect one end of the cable to the external monitor.

  2. Connect the other end of the cable to either one of the USB C-Type ports on the side of your Chromebook Pro.

Display Settings

The external monitor will extend your screen by default.

  1. To switch the external monitor between Extended and Mirrored, navigate to the Status Tray > Settings.

  2. Select Display Settings under Device.

  3. Select the Options drop down menu.

    • Extended Desktop: extend your main monitor to the external monitor.

    • Mirrored: display the same screen on the main display onto the external monitor.

  4. Select Mirrored.
