Hi! I am not an IT person by ANY stretch, so I apologize if this is a silly question. I have a personal Dell desktop computer and a dual Acer monitor setup. I recently started a new job and they have provided me with a Lenovo laptop and a Plugable USB Dual Head Graphics & Gigabit Ethernet Adapter. I was able to successfully connect my monitors to the adapter and the adapter to the laptop via the USB. That is working beautifully.
I am wondering if it is possible to toggle this monitor set up to the desktop computer when I need it instead of the laptop, and instead of having another monitor for the desktop (trying NOT to have 3 monitors).
I was hoping I could simply disconnect the USB from the laptop & connect it to the desktop, but that does not appear to be working. (Prior to trying this connection I DID install the driver software on the desktop computer). I am guessing it is because I am trying to connect it to the desktop using a USB extension cable?? I suppose I could move the pluggable and laptop under my desk where the desktop computer is if you think that is really the issue, but I wanted to check before dismantling this entire set up. Thank you for your help!
