Browse ifixit.com and you can see ifixit's part numbers for these two 13" Retina MacBook Pro machines. The "Display LVDS cables" on the two MacBooks carry the same ifixit part numbers. The two models' "Screen Assemblies," however, show different ifixit part numbers. Because the screen part numbers are different, I think the answer to your question is "...

Theoretically, yes. From https://everymac.com/systems/apple/macbook_pro/specs/macbook-pro-core-i7-2.4-15-early-2013-retina-display-specs.html: This model supports a simultaneous maximum resolution up to 2560x1600 on two external displays via Thunderbolt. Alternately, it can support a single display up to 2560x1600 via Thunderbolt and a single display up ...

This is the correct behavior. The actual resolution of the panel is 2880 x 1800, but macOS scales the UI to simulate 1440 x 900 @ 2x by default. You can change the scaling factor in Display preferences to "create" more screen space. If you set it to the highest setting, 1920 x 1200, then you'll be able to drag a window from the external to the internal ...

I would try a third party executable that will allow you to list and change the screen resolution from the command line. cscreen works on macOS Sierra, High Sierra, and Mojave, there are also several projects on Github, but your mileage may vary.

I had the same issue with Mojave 10.14.6. The j5Create worked perfectly until installing the supplemental update to the OS. With Apple trying to fix blacked-out/locked screen issue, whatever they did in the update broke j5Create.

Things to try in your situation include: switch your external display on first, followed by switching on the MacBook Pro (within a second or two) - hopefully it'll get the signal it needs to display the MBP's output if the above doesn't work, and assuming you only have the one user account, then switch on your MBP and wait long enough for it to be at the ...

I had this problem and it was the USB-C to HDMI adaptor. I changed brands, I now have insignia (best buy brand) and the issue went away. I don't know if it was a compatibility issue or if I just got a bad one... I don't know what about the different adaptor fixed it.

Yes, simply go into System Preferences->Display. A new window will pop up on your primary monitors, as well as your external monitors. The external monitors should have a "Rotation" drop down menu, in which you can select "Standard", "90º", "180º", and "720º". If you select "90º" and hit "Scaled" under the resolution option, you'll see that the standard ...

After further Googling turns out this is a common issue with this model of Macbook. Apple will fix it for free. https://support.apple.com/13-inch-macbook-pro-display-backlight-service

Your model MacBook Pro can power external displays at 60Hz in the following combinations: One display at 5120 x 2880 resolution with over a billion colors Two displays at 3840 x 2160 resolution with over a billion colors Two displays at 4096 x 2304 resolution with millions of colors So, to use both the 5K and 4K displays you need to be mindful of the ...

Apparently, the MacBook Pro can only power external displays up to 5K resolution. What you can do to use both the monitors is: Connect one of the monitors (preferably the 5k first) and lower it's resolution way down, up to 720p perhaps, by following the steps as illustrated in https://support.apple.com/kb/ph25175?locale=en_US Then connect the other monitor(...

I'm assuming your Mac is running macOS Sierra or later and your Mac has Night Shift enabled (by default Night Shift will change the appearance of your screen at night). To access Night Shift settings go to Apple > System Preferences > Displays and select the Night Shift tab (see screenshot below): Depending on your version of macOS your Displays ...

Reinstall VMware Tools As was often the case with the competitor Parallels you mentioned, when the screen resolution fails to adjust you may need to re-install their software that embeds within the guest OS to enhance integration with the host OS. From the main VMware Fusion app menu bar, choose Virtual Machine > Reinstall VMware Tools. This mounts an ...

I set my windows to what size I like. Here is how I use my web browser. You can adjust the windows to what size you like. The come back to that size the next time you start. For some reason, Windows seems to want you to work on one app at a time in full screen. In the mac, I have multiple apps open at once. One of the great features of macOS for me, ...

If by HP27fw you mean this display, then you may have gotten a fairly low end 27 inch display. For example on my work PC (Optiplex 7060, Win-10) I have three Dell 24-inch displays that are set to their native resolution of 2560 x 1440. So, you ask, what does that have to do with my display on my Mac? Glad you asked. The specs of that monitor say ...

Your only options are both workarounds: Uncheck "Displays have separate Spaces" under System Preferences > Mission Control Pin dock to right or left instead of bottom (obviously not ideal if you're a bottom pinner) More details here: https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-keep-the-mac-dock-on-one-screen-in-a-dual-monitor-setup/

What worked for me was switching cables. At first I was using a USB-C to HDMI adapter. When I changed the plug to connect the monitor with my MacBook without the adapter it started to work without any issues.

An extension called nosleep does exactly this. Free and easy to set up!

I just had the same problem. But after trying everything everyone has said I plug into the internet through ethernet cable and it fixed it.

Knowing that this question is rather old I want to make you aware of https://github.com/the0neyouseek/MonitorControl which is open source, well maintained and quite handy. You can control brightness, contrast or volume directly from a menulet or with keyboard native keys. Keyboard keys even display the native osd.
