S5-371 dual display issue with type-c adapter

I have fully upgraded windows 10 and all the latest drivers from Acer support pages installed to my Aspire S5-371.

When I'm trying to connect a display into type-c USB-port using a type-c/HDMI adapter, windows shows an error message "Display connection is limited" and by clicking it, it opens following web site:

I tried 2 different type-c/HDMI adapters with same results. Does my new laptop support dual display at all?

    The end of the M$ note says "The hardware and software on the system, the device or adapter, or cable does not support the DisplayPort /DockPort or MHL alternate modes."

     

    Now since a regular USB port works (2.0 even) for DisplayPort that leaves MHL. Maybe you need one of these.
