How to Connect LG Monitor to MacBook Pro

The MacBook Pro allows you to work anywhere, but working on just one screen can be frustrating if you don’t need to be mobile. This is especially the case if you have to have many large windows and tabs open simultaneously. However, you can also connect your MacBook to a monitor, so you will have a second screen to use.

In this article, we will particularly guide how to connect an LG monitor to MacBook Pro? However, you can use this same setup for almost every monitor to connect with your MacBook Pro.

LG Monitor and MacBook Pro Ports

If you want to connect an LG monitor to your MacBook, it is essential to know which ports it uses. MacBook Pro comes with USB-C ports that can be used to connect monitors to them. As part of the MacBook line-up, Apple added the USB-C port, making it a universal connector.

On the 2020 MacBook Air or MacBook Pro, you will find a Thunderbolt 3 or USB 4.0 port. There is only one port type on Apple’s 2020 models, which can vary between 2-4 depending on the model.

Some LG monitors come with USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, but these ports are too slow for transferring data; therefore, you cannot use them to connect a MacBook Pro to an LG monitor. Moreover, you cannot even use an iPad as a second monitor with them. To make this possible, you have to use Sidecar.

Most of the advanced monitors from LG come with an HDMI port. Some monitors also use DisplayPort, which is less common than HDMI.

So, it may be possible that you are not able to connect your LG monitor to MacBook Pro directly. Therefore, you will have to use an adaptor that comes with USB-C to the appropriate video input port (HDMI, VGA, etc.) to connect your LG monitor to MacBook Pro.

Connect LG monitor to MacBook Pro

Ensure that your monitor is powered on and that the power cable is plugged into the monitor.

Plugging in your MacBook should take you no more than a few seconds. During this time, your laptop screen will become black for a brief moment and then turn on with a continuation of the screen on your LG monitor.

If you’ve set your LG monitor next to your laptop, you’ll be able to choose to use it above, below, to the right, or to the left of it, depending on where you place it.

If your MacBook believes your monitor is to the right when it is really to the left, you will have to move your cursor to the right to reach it if you think your monitor is to the right. It can be disorienting and hinder your workflow, for instance, if you must switch between displays frequently.

You may also be interested in:

This issue can be resolved or avoided by navigating to System Preferences > Displays. Then two windows will appear, one representing the screen of your MacBook and one representing the screen of your LG monitor. Each of these screens can be customized by altering the brightness, the resolution, the rotation of the screen, and the colors displayed on the screen.

To make viewing and working more accessible, it is very helpful if the settings of both displays are set to match.
