This answer was rated:

Hi How can I connect my Lenovo yoga 530 laptop to two external monitors?
Assistant: What's the brand/model and Operating System (OS) of your laptop?
Customer: Its a Lenovo Yoga 530 running windows 10
Assistant: What have you tried so far with your laptop? Have you installed any updates recently?
Customer: I tried an usb-c splitter but that did not work, I am currently connected to one external monitor via HDMI cable but as the laptop screen is only 14" I would like to add another monitor.
Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No

You use this adapter

Make sure it is connected to the USB port that is blue on the inside

And make sure to install the drivers that come with it, then it will work for you.

I see you left without providing me a rating.. this means I receive nothing for the service.

Is there a reason you choose to do this?
