Well that's a let down.
Thanks, Richard. The first cable I tried was HDMI at both ends. Upon start up, the Dell then told me "No DVI-D " connection. My computer did not recognize the Dell at all. So then I tried the Display port to display port cable I already had.If you stop using DisplayPort, you will have no DisplayPort problems. Use HDMI.
High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI)
2 Digital Visual Interface connectors (DVI-D) with HDCP
Video Graphics Array (VGA)
1 USB 2.0 upstream port
4 USB 2.0 downstream ports
8 in 1 Media reader
DC power connector for Dell Soundbar
Good idea. When I first tried the HDMI cable, I didn't know the little blue lights on the side were touch sensitive.....So you seem to be saying that the monitor has an HDMI socket on it? As you say you tried a cable with HDMI at both ends. So don't buy an adapter, you don't need one.
Plug that HDMI-HDMI cable back in. Press the button on the monitor again and again until it selects the HDMI input socket. So what then happens when you select the HDMI input socket?
1. The Extend option is already selected.There are lots of guides on YouTube - look for setting up multiple displays with Windows 10.
I don't have two displays, but if I remember correctly, here are two things to do.
1. Hold down the Windows key and type the letter P. You want the Extend option.
2. Go to All Settings/Home/Display and scroll down the Multiple Displays section.
