Connecting gear through USB ports on a Y27GQ-20

2020-11-26, 9:31 AM

Hi all,

 

Do any of you know how to use this monitor as a USB hub? I can use it to charge sub devices but not to connect them through the monitor to my laptop. I am using the USB ports on the side, do I have to connect the pc with a USB to one of the bottom ones or something?

 

I am running a display port cable in between the monitor and my Y740.

Thanks for any help with this issue, I am trying to keep my desk cable free!

Čauko Minimi7,

 

jop, this is possible. You need to connect the monitor to your PC through a separate cable (not for video) as shown in step 9 of the quick start guide for your monitor:

You're very welcome!

 

Me too! I remember such cables from decades ago ;) These seem to be very common with monitors now.
