    Hi so I recently came to a problem.

    It was my birthday and after asking a lot for this pc I had received a MacBook Air.

    This was no issue to me for I had been happy to get anything at all, but I had purchased three monitors before that I was going to hook up.

    I soon realized the MacBook had no HDMI no I purchased a Mini Display port to hdmi adapter. It worked! But for only one display. Then I saw a usb to hdmi and that worked but now it was only two displays and I had no other ways of getting three displays.

    So I was wondering if anyone here knew a way to make that happen.

    Also I installed win 10 on it using boot camp if that helps at all

    Thank you for this it helps a lot with the port problems just one question though can you use two usb to hdmi outputs on your computer to connect to two displays or will they be only recognized as one output and just using a usb splitter to connect them

    Because i already have a mini dp to hdmi and the two way is very expensive at 129 dollars

    Read the information from post # 2 carefully.
    This information shows that you can view the image only on the built-in screen and on one external monitor (by using the appropriate adapter you can adapt to different input jacks of the monitor).
    Does the user manual have no information on how to use the Thunderbolt 2 port?

    I’ve seen the post but I know people have connected to two monitors using a usb to hdmi adapter and the correct drivers being installed. I was wondering if using two USB adapters would allow three displays as well as the thunderbolt adapter.
