I have a Surface Book 2 (Windows 10) which I want to connect to two external monitors.
In total, I wish to have three screens: 1 x Surface Book screen and 2 x external screens.
I have extended the screens via a USB-C to VGA connector along with a VGA splitter, but this just doubles the external monitor output so that I have a unique screen on the Surface Book 2, and the extension of said screen duplicated across the two external monitors (they both show the same thing).
Which setup (cables, splitters, etc.) do I need to have in order to achieve my desired setup?
I can connect a single VGA monitor to the SB2, but the problem is that there are issues with the resolution in that the monitor's resolution is not 4K-compatible (whereas the SB2's is) and that results in software text rendering much larger than on the SB2's screen, meaning that menu items don't display in full and the software is unusable in that respect.
Naturally, I have attempted numerous resolution/zoom-level combinations, all of which product sub-par results.
Would a USB-C to HDMI converter work when linked up with a HDMI to VGA splitter (so that you can plug 2 x VGAs into it and have them both converted to HDMI simultaneously)?
