Microsoft device team gives tips on connecting a Surface to an external display

Microsoft has just released a nice short video explaining the basics of how to connect a Surface device to a larger monitor via the “Project” option in the Action Center and the mini-display port. In the video, the host does mention that users can jump straight to the “Project” option by pressing the Windows and “P” keys at the same time but for those that like to use their Surface’s touch screens (even with a keyboard attached) this option can also be brought up be swiping in from the right-hand side of the screen.

To connect a Surface Pro 3, Surface Pro 4, or a Surface Book to multiple monitors, Microsoft recommends their own Microsoft Surface Dock. We got our hands on the latest Microsoft Surface Dock recently and even filmed our own unboxing of it. We also conducted a full review of it and were impressed with its new design and improved functionality. Do you connect your Surface to a monitor? How do you do it? Let us know in the comments below.
