How can I connect a VGA monitor to NUC10i3FNB?

I just got a new NUC10i3FNB to replace my old PC and successfully connected one monitor to it via HDMI, and would like to connect a second (VGA-and-DVI-only-capable) monitor to it via its USB-C.   

So far I tried using a "Type C to VGA Adapter", but Windows 10 wouldn't detect the second monitor.

I already upgraded the BIOS and Device drivers on the NUC10i3FNB to the latest by using the Intel Driver & Support Assistant.  But there is still no detection of the second monitor.

I checked this article but cannot see any specific options for VGA monitor:  https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000056438/intel-nuc.html

Are there any other option?

I have also seen cases where USB-C-to-VGA adapters don't work. You could try a USB-C-to-DVI adaptor. Alternatively - and I have done this with some NUCs - you could use a USB-C-to-HDMI adapter and then a HDMI-to-DVI dongle. 

Hope this helps,

Thanks Scott!  This USB-C-to-HDMI adapter and then a HDMI-to-DVI dongle option works perfectly!
