Chapter 4. Working with the dock

This chapter provides information about the video output function of the dock and instructions on how to
configure the dock to your needs.

Video output modes

The dock works in the following two video output modes:
• Extend mode
This mode extends your desktop from your notebook computer to the external monitor. In extend mode,
you can drag and drop windows from one display to the other.
• Clone mode
This mode clones your notebook computer screen to the external monitor.

Important tips on working with the dock

Before working with the dock, observe the following tips:
• To enter a video output mode and adjust the external-display resolution, right-click anywhere on the
desktop and select Graphics options. For detailed information, go to "Entering a video output mode" on
page 11 and "Setting the resolution of the external monitor" on page 12.
• The maximum resolution the dock supports is 2560 x 1600 pixels (60 Hz) when connected to one monitor,
and 1920 x 1200 pixels (60 Hz) when connected to two monitors.
• When your notebook computer is connected to two external monitors at the same time:
– Situation: One monitor is connected to the HDMI connector of the notebook computer, and the other
is connected to the HDMI connector of the dock.
Result: Your notebook computer desktop is displayed on the monitor connected to the notebook
computer.

Dock), and the other is connected to the connector of the wireless ThinkPad WiGig Dock.

the notebook computer, the wired dock, and the wireless ThinkPad WiGig Dock.
