  1. Win-10 Pro USB-C video output to desktop monitor


    I have a notebook computer with Win-10 Pro OEM on since late 2019 and recently updated to the 2020 October OS update. I have a desktop monitor with USB-C video input, but am unsure how to direct Win-10 to output video to the USB-C port. The only thing I could find is that the computer's motherboard BIOS / UEFI set up allows the user to choose the on-board LCD or external display, or both / automatic mode. From what I understand all audio / video streams will be carried through USB-C connection but have never tried this before and unsure how to do it. The desktop monitor has much higher native resolution than that on the computer, which is full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution. Thanks for any starter tips / steps advice.

    :)

    Not all USB-C ports can carry video natively. Your USB-C port will need to have support for "Alternative Mode", often simply referred to as "Alt Mode".

    See this article for details:

    Everything You Need to Know About USB-C Video

    Another good reference:

    Definitive Guide to USB-C Alternate Modes - Cable Chick Blog

    It's important to note too that the cable needs to be of the proper type. For example, it's entirely possible to have a cable that has USB-C connectors on both ends but won't do anything more than USB 2 speeds and that will not support any Alt Modes.

    BTW, you may want to update your computer specs in your profile. From that, we might be able to look up the specs to see if your particular system supports Alt Modes, and if so, which ones.
