Just got my new lenovo Thinkpad T460s, so far everything is going perfect. I just ran into an issue. When connecting an external screen via a standard HDMI cable to my Thinkpad T460s, the notebook does not detect the second screen. All the information on the lenovo website sugests that it should atomatically detect external screen via HDMI connection. Is there something I am missing?
* Restarting does not work
* Updating the display driver does not work
* Cable does work on other notebooks
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you come from a Mac background you may expect the external monitor to be active when you just plug it in, since that is the Mac way of controlling your 2nd monitor.
In Windows you have explicit control of how you use extra montors. Press <WinKey>-P to cycle through the external display options.
[Just guessing here - no offense intended ;-) ]
