  • Check that your projector has as HDMI connection. If it doesn’t you’ll need a VGA to HDMI converter.

Option 1: Using the Chromebook menu, you can extend the screen, which turns the Chromebook desktop into a second monitor. This gives you the ability to drag screens onto the Chromebook desktop without displaying them on the main screen. In order to display them on the projector screen, you have to move them off the Chromebook monitor onto the projector monitor. This can get confusing.

Once you have chosen your screen option open your document and let the presentation begin!
