There are three video connection options with the Pen Displays 24. The cables for the three connection types are included with the Pen Display 24 kit.
Method 1 below uses the fewest cables to connect using the USC-C Display Alt cable to a computer that supports a USB-C Display Alt connection. Not all computers support this type of video connection.
When you plug in the USB-C Display Alt cable and turn on the Pen Display 24, you will see a message on your computer that Alt Display is activated, and then the Pen Display 24 will show a desktop image.
All three video connections require the use of the AC power connection.
** If you are using the HDMI or DisplayPort cable connection, you MUST use the USB-C or USB-C or USB-C to USB-A cable. This will allow for the Pens and the Control Buttons to work.
