Note: the new dongle that works on newer Mac’s (what most students have) doesn’t work on older Mac’s How to connect and disconnect – ORDER MATTERS! Connect the dongle to the VGA cable first and then connect the dongle to the computer When detaching, do it in the same order. Detach the dongle from the Mac first and then detach the dongle from the VGA cable. Note: when you don’t follow these steps, you sometimes need to reset your video settings for the screen to return to original size.
