I have a Intel HD Graphics 520 Display adapter. I want to set up 3 screens, laptop + 2 externals. One screen is no problem, but the second does not work.

I have seen on the posts that it is not advisable to use adapters, however I do not have a choice. Unfortunately nothing I do seems to work. Do you have any advise on what to try?

That is not the W10 version number. Go to start, settings, system, about, and get the version number.

You are on version 1803, which is March 2018.

 

Whatever the case, you should upgrade to 1909:

Back to the actual problem, it appears that the VGA and DP connectors are exclusive (i.e. you can use only one of them). To get a third display, you may be able to use a DisplayPort MST Hub to connect two displays. Here are some examples:

 

For DisplayPort monitors: https://www.amazon.com/Monoprice-2-Port-DisplayPort-Multi-Stream-Transport/dp/B075754ZYC

For HDMI monitors: https://www.amazon.com/C2G-54293-DisplayPort-Monitor-Splitter/dp/B07S3257HQ

 

Note that, if these work, you are sharing the bandwidth of the single DisplayPort channel across the two monitors. I would stick to 1080p or similar monitors. You should be able to go up to 4K @30Hz but, well, ...

 

Hope this helps,
