How to Use a Tablet as a Monitor: A Beginner’s Guide

Tablets are becoming increasingly popular as a second screen for computers. They’re portable, they have great battery life, and they’re usually cheaper than an equivalent-sized monitor. In this article, we’ll show you how to use your tablet as a monitor for your computer.

First, you’ll need to choose the right tablet. We recommend an iPad or Android tablet with a screen size of at least 7 inches. Smaller tablets may work, but you’ll likely find the experience to be less than ideal. Once you’ve got your tablet, you’ll need to connect it to your computer.

If you have an iPad, you can use the Apple Lightning to Digital AV Adapter to connect your tablet to your computer. For Android tablets, you’ll need a Micro HDMI to HDMI adapter. Once you’ve got your tablet connected, you’ll need to adjust your computer’s settings.

On a Mac, open System Preferences and click on Displays. On a PC, open the Control Panel and click on Display. In the Display settings, you should see your tablet listed as a second monitor. Select it and then click on the “Extend desktop to this display” option.

Now that your tablet is set up as a second monitor, you can use it just like you would any other monitor. You can move windows over to it, watch videos, or even play games. If you want to use your tablet as a primary monitor, you can do that too. Just remember to adjust your computer’s settings accordingly.

That’s all there is to it! Using a tablet as a monitor is a great way to increase your productivity or just have some extra fun. Give it a try and see how you like it.
