Since you're a JavaScript programmer and you need to see your SVGs in a browser there are two potential solutions. First, you can use the chrome dev tools to simulate a non HiDPI (Retina Display) screen in the browser. Or you can use the EasyRes app to quickly switch the resolution of your entire display. Solution 1 Steps to view websites as different ...

Yes, it's possible. Well, I can do it. MacBook Pro, MacOS 10.11, if that matters. Just find the spot where the lid sensor is, (about 1/3 from the bottom on the left edge of this laptop) and park a magnet on it. The internal display goes dark, but the external still displays, and the keyboard types, and both the trackpad and external pointing devices ...

You could use Affinity Designer, which has modes for working with regular resolutions and HiDPI screens. You can switch between them seamlessly. It even shows the aliasing occurring on regular resolutions, which is probably what you want to check for. Other than that, you’d have to attach a non-retina display to your Mac and just move everything there. It’s ...

There is two solutions that I can recommend for you. First, a very generic one where you need to close the screen lid. Hook the LCD display to the Mac with the appropriate adapter Hook up the external keyboard and mouse (optional but recommended) Boot the MacBook with the broken screen, then close the screen during boot This will automatically boot your ...

HiDPI options are normally only seen on HiDPI monitors. Are you sure that your Aorus monitor is a HiDPI display? From what I can find on the internet, it's a 2560 x 1440 27 inch display. That said, the resolution options are a bit strange: there is no 2560 x 1440 option for example. You can sometimes get more resolution options by holding Alt (option) when ...

It depends entirely on the monitor type. Some monitors support power delivery, some do not. You'll obviously want one that does support power delivery. Next comes the rated power - it differs from monitor to monitor how many watts of power they can delivery over the cable. The size of the battery in the laptop doesn't matter here - the only thing that ...

I'd say that your MBP is limited to 2 external monitors. You can't sub-divide the same number of pixels across more displays.

You cannot just assume that an 8K display can be supported just because it supports 4 x 4k displays - it doesn't work that way, I'm afraid. As far as I know, no 8k monitors with a single cable solution exists today. That would require DisplayPort 2.0, which is coming with monitors next year. So yes, at the moment 8k resolution through one cable is ...

Check if your external monitor supports DDC/CI. If so, you can use this app to adjust the brightness using your keyboard.

I don’t have the unit to test, but would connect all the displays to the puck since it’s likely going to be the only active GPU. The good news is it supports 4x 4K displays through one cable from the Mac to the puck - so a quick call to the vendor to clear your case (or Apple) might let you know. I would worry about the LG display since it can’t take DP or ...

Yes, you can enable a 3 display config in roughly three ways: 1) Using an eGPU. This is a real, full powered external GPU connected to the iMac over the relatively fast Thunderbolt 3 bus. You can buy different eGPUs at various speeds, but will generally enable you to do everything on your third monitor that you can do on the first two. This is how an eGPU ...

SwitchResX will let you rename your monitors. You can download a free 10 day trial of it to do so. To address your root problem though, try the free terminal tool I wrote, displayplacer, that lets describe your monitor layout as a terminal command. I then use BetterTouchTool to execute these profiles via hotkeys. I have the same issue as you, when I plug in ...

actually your Macbook Pro does not support more than 1 5k display. just check the resolution and get back to me.

From your observations it sounds like you have a temperature problem with your MacBook Pro. The system makes the CPU sleep when it detects a temperature problem - this what makes it appear as if kernel_task consumes all the CPU time (it actually doesn't). Usually this is due to either: (a) fan problems, (b) blocked vents or (c) lack of cooling paste. I ...

The 13" MacBook Pro 2019 supports 2 external monitors (in addition to the built-in monitor). If you want to connect more monitors, you'll external equipment such as a DisplayLink adapter or an eGPU for hooking up extra monitors.

Did you ever think about forcing to set a higher speed for the fan? Maybe smcFanControl or Macs Fan Control it would help.

I know it is rather late for a reply, but I had the same problem at 4:02 AM this morning. The day after I returned the Choetech Thunderbolt Power cable that I bought for $63 on Amazon and went back to the original Apple supplied cable (which seems a little looser in the LG). The problem started happening a couple of months ago (I bought the same Macbook 13,...
