Output laptop to 2 monitors via HDMI and VGA simultaneously

Hi, I want to connect my laptop to two external monitors.

 

On my previous laptop I could output to my monitors using an HDMI and VGA simultaneously. The graphics card on the old laptop was an "Intel (R) HD Graphics 4000"

 

However, on my newer laptop if I connect using the HDMI and VGA, only the HDMI is displaying. The graphics card on the newer laptop is a "Intel (R) UHD Graphics 620". The VGA does work on its own if I dont use the HDMI. 

 

I know I can use HDMI-USB adapters to connect the second screen but I have noticed that this sometimes interferes with the wifi signal.

 

I would prefer if I could figure out how to use the HDMI and VGA simultaneously on the new laptop. Are you able to help with this issue?

 

Thanks

Kind Regards,

Shane
