Inspiron 13 usb-c and hdmi ports for dual monitors?

Jump to solution

I have an Inspiron 13 (7368) and I was wondering if the HDMI port and the usb-c port with DisplayPort would be able to output at the same time. I want to hook up my laptop to 2 external monitors, where one is connected via the HDMI port, and the other is connected through an hdmi to usb type c dongle. Does anyone know if this is possible? Or do I just need to buy a docking station? I wanted to see if I could just use the HDMI and USB-C ports on the laptop first in order to save a few dollars.

it's been exactly one month, and i have an answer to my own question. the hdmi and usb c port can output at the same time, so i'm using a usb-c dongle for one monitor while the other is hooked up via hdmi. also if anyone is curious, the laptop screen does NOT act as a third screen as far as I can tell.

*EDIT*: turns out the laptop screen CAN be used as a third screen after all!
