    displaylink (dynadock 4k) not working with windows 10 laptop

    I have a Toshiba dynadock 4k with an external monitor but I cannot see this monitor listed in my Windows 10 laptop display settings and cannot make my display appear on second monitor.

    DisplayLink website suggests this may be a Windows 10 issue.

    How do I get this working?

  3. 4K and 1080p monitors

    Hello everyone,

    I have a question regarding the different resolutions of computer screens. I have laptop with a 4K display and I have a 1080p monitor. Most applications that I use tend to scale correctly when I drag them across displays. However some applications like IDLE
    or Corsair UE don't tend to change their resolutions. They tend to stay the same when dragged to another display, so if it started on the 1080p screen it would go to really small and stay small on the 4k display and if I drag it from the 4k to the 1080p display
    the application is massive and can't be viewed. Is there any possible shortcut which can be used to "refresh" the application without quitting and re-opening?

    Thanks in advance,

    .

    4K monitor displaying from 1080p laptop

    Hi Sean,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We would need some information.

    May I know the Make and the Model of the Laptop?



    Graphic card of the Laptop should be compatible with the 4k Monitor to play 4k Video

    Refer this link to check the Compatibility list:
    Dell Compatibility list.




    Hope it helps.
