How to Connect a Chromebook to an External Monitor/Projector

MyshortTips Chromebook Tutorial - Showing the screen to the projector for the monitor is one way to convey ideas and ideas through presentations that we make on laptops, can Chromebooks do that?


This depends on the Chromebook you buy, whether it supports an HDMI output port, or a port that essentially can be used as a graphics output line.


An example is this Samsung Chromebook 4 that I bought.

Indeed, there is no HDMI port, but there is a Type C port that supports audio video graphics output, so that we can display output to external output devices such as monitors or projectors.

Well, but there's no HDMI port, right? whereas if the hdmi cable needs an hdmi port to be able to connect to a laptop, or in this case a chromebook.

Use Type C to HDMI Adapter

We can use an adapter to convert the Type C port to HDMI, so that the HDMI cable can be connected to our Chromebook.

There are lots of Adapter options that you can find on the Marketplace... you can use it as a keyword to search for.

Steps to Connect Chromebook ChromeOS USB Type C to HDMI Monitor/Projector

Make sure your monitor/projector supports HDMI cable, meaning that there is an HDMI port there.

  1. Please connect one end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI port on the monitor or projector.
  2. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable to the HDMI Port on the USB Type C to HDMI Adapter.
  3. Connect the end of the USB Type C adapter to the USB Type C port on the Chromebook (for example, Samsung's Chromebook 4 which USB Type C supports graphics output.)
  4. Chromebook displays already have an Extend to Monitor/Projector display.

How to Mirror Chromebook

By default, when it is connected to a second display, it will be extended, meaning you have additional screen space, or a secondary monitor.

But if you want the display on an external monitor or projector to be the same as the display on a Chromebook, you need to make settings.


  1. 1. Go to the Settings section or "Settings"
  2. 2. Select the "Connected Devices" menu
  3. 3. Select "Displays"
  4. 4. Please check the section  Mirroring

What If the Chromebook already has an HDMI Port

Yes, it's true, you don't need a converter anymore, because the HDMI cable can be directly plugged into the HDMI port on your Chromebook.

For both Extend and Mirror Settings, it's more or less the same, because it's on Chrome OS.


If you want to present to a bigger monitor, or to a projector, if you use a Chromebook with Chrome OS in it, then you don't have to worry... because you can... :)

eh, but first look at the specs of the Chromebook.... as far as I know, the latest chromebooks are very supportive of this... :)

  1. My Chrome OS doesn't have those options so don't know how to connect to a projector, I tried using a HDMI, my laptop doesn't have a HDMI only USB. so what do I do? I can connect it my desktop with HDMI no problem, just not laptop. I really need help,
    I even bought the adapter and still doesn't work.

  2. in this case, if the usb port (type A or type C) doesn't support display output such as thunderbolt, mhl, or others... that means the USB port can't be used to display the display to a projector or external monitor, so even if you buy an hdmi to usb adapter, it's still it won't work, because basically for USB it is used as an input port, not an output..., but that doesn't mean it can't completely... you use other methods, such as using chromecast, for example like this one that can be purchased on amazon.. https ://
