VN7-572G USB Type-C port as a display port

Is there a way to make the USB Type-C port on the VN7-572G a display port? Like downloadable drivers?

    Also curious about the answer to this. Did you try it out by any chance?

    Yhippa, I tried my external monitor that can only be used with a Type-C to Type-C connection and that didn't work. I hope there is a solution as I require it for video editing on the go.

    This USB spec is confusing. I saw on Monoprice that they have USB 3.1 to USB 3 cables. If there's that level of distinction I wonder if you need to know know what verson each end of the cable plugs into and make sure they match.

    It is confusing as it is often wrongly used. USB 3 as you would expect is the latest version of the common USB with a Type-B port. 3.1 is used wrong a lot of the time but it only refers to Type-C.

    Also, my external monitor doesn't accept steps down to any other USB format, only Type-C so I can't even buy an adapter.

    Sorry, when I said Type-B it should say Type-A.
