How to use a TV as a computer monitor

You can use a TV as a computer monitor, but there are a few things you need to know first. Here’s a step-by-step guide to using your TV as a monitor.

  1. First, make sure your TV has an HDMI input. If it doesn’t, you’ll need to use a different cable.
  2. Next, connect your computer to the TV. If you’re using an HDMI cable, simply connect it to the HDMI port on both the TV and the computer. If you’re using a different type of cable, consult your TV’s manual for instructions on how to connect it.
  3. Once your computer is connected to the TV, you’ll need to adjust your computer’s display settings. On a Windows PC, right-click on the desktop and select “Display Settings.” On a Mac, go to the “System Preferences” menu and select “Displays.”
  4. In the display settings menu, you’ll need to select the TV as your primary display. On a Windows PC, you can do this by clicking the “Detect” button. On a Mac, you can drag the white bar to the right of the “Built-in Display” option to the TV.
  5. Once you’ve selected the TV as your primary display, you can adjust the resolution and other settings to your liking. On a Windows PC, you can do this by clicking the “Advanced Settings” link. On a Mac, you can click the “Scaled” option and select a resolution that’s appropriate for your TV.
  6. And that’s it! You can now use your TV as a computer monitor. Enjoy!
