I3 - Screen Resolution Problem when Plugging Laptop to HDMI Monitor

I plugged a HDMI-Cable into my laptop, which was connected to a monitor.
This happened:

I am a bit puzzled… The display eDPI is set to it’s maximum resolution (which is a glorious 720p :stuck_out_tongue: ) according to arandr. Where else should I look for problems?

Any help is appreciated :slight_smile:

Maybe you will need to drag and drop one of this screens draws (you can see, those draws are not side by side) in Arandr, then call the restart command for i3 (with your keybinding).

Looks like your monitor is not setup to work in multi-monitor mode.

Maybe look at https://i3wm.org/docs/userguide.html#presentations and see if this is what you’re looking to achieve? (Forgot to mention you’re looking at the " 8.2.2. Case 2: you can see more than your audience" section)
