How To Connect Surface Pro To Projector – Easy Way

I know this topic has been written about in many blogs. But I am writing it again after my cousin asked me How to Connect Surface Pro to Projector. She told me that she is frustrated with how to connect her Surface Pro to a projector. She wanted to share some images of her Google Slides presentation with the attendees of a meeting she’s going to. Her only option was to make a printout of her presentation. But she was not interested in doing that.

How do I connect my Surface laptop to a projector?

The way to connect your Surface Pro device to a TV is by getting the Microsoft Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter and a 1.5 m or 5 ft Micro HDMI cable. You need to connect one end of the cable to your Surface Pro device and then the other end to the HDMI input on your TV, projector, or monitor. Once you’re done connecting it, all you need to do is tap the Windows key + P and select ‘Extend’, or press it again if you want to go back to mirroring your display.

How To Connect Surface Pro To Projector With HDMI:

Projectors these days are a lot like flat-screen TVs in that they give you many options for how to use them. The beauty of having multiple connection options is that your projector can be more accommodating depending on where and how you’re planning on using it but this means it can be trickier to figure out exactly what setup you need. Regardless of the many connection options a projector offers, pretty much every home theater projector will at least have one HDMI port. If you’re looking to connect your laptop to a projector that has an HDMI port, connecting it isn’t as tricky as it might seem.

Why use HDMI?

Because it’s used in so many devices and connections, HDMI is the protocol you’ll want to go with when connecting A/V equipment. It’s likely one of the cables you’re most likely to find on TVs, projectors, laptops, gaming consoles, and anything else that uses an HDMI connection.

HDMI has its advantages for sure, but VGA will continue to remain king for a long time before being replaced by the newer interface. HDMI can carry both your video and audio signals at the same time which means you have fewer cables to use. But VGA still reigns superior when it comes to overall bandwidth and quality.

HDMI is the best when it comes to video quality. Originally designed for high definition content, HDMI can now send 4K resolution at frame rates of up to 60 frames per second. This makes HDMI ideal for gaming and 4K video content. It’s very easy to set up any device using HDMI today thanks to the backward compatibility with older versions of the technology as well as thanks to micro-connectors that make installation easier than ever before. It’s a win for users who want the absolute best video quality with minimal configuration and setup. Now you know how to connect your laptop to your projector:

Choose the right cables:

A device’s interface is a very important consideration when buying a cable. If you have an HDMI port on your laptop, find out if the cable can accommodate that input before you buy. You should also make sure there’s enough slack between your PC and the projector so that you can move the computer while it’s connected to the projector without disrupting its connection to the screen.

When trying to pick the right projector cable we have found that it is important to take into account where you are going to mount your projector and how far away it will be from your computer. You can find a table or chart in most marketing materials that indicate how long each model of cable is and what lengths are ideal for specific setups. In fact, if you’re choosing between multiple models of cables all with similar specs you could probably benefit from comparing images along with any text information provided.

Plugin your laptop:

A whole movie can take a lot of energy. So, laptops are often built with power management features in order to prevent them from transferring content through the HDMI port if it is running on battery.

It’s common for people to have a lot of devices plugged into one power source, but you should be careful when doing this. All of those devices can draw a lot of electricity, which can lead to dangerous power surges. Unplug things that are not in use or purchase surge protectors.

If you can’t connect an HDMI cable to your laptop and the projector without a hitch, one way to get around this issue is by adjusting your computer settings to fit the needs of the situation. Keep in mind that sending high-def content from your computer through an HDMI port on the projector will drain your battery quickly though.

Connect the cable:

To get your laptop screen to project on a wall or projector, plug the HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) cable into the projector’s HDMI port and the other end into your laptop’s HDMI or video output. By doing this you make sure that both the video and audio are beamed onto your set in high quality.

Power on your devices:

Turn on the projector and confirm that your laptop is connected via the HDMI input. If your projector has multiple ports. Make sure your laptop is connected to an HDMI or DVI port. Now you should be ready for a smooth presentation.

Now you can connect your device to accessories such as a Display Dock, and Ethernet adapter, and charge your device at the same time with just one cable!
