How do I turn AIO Aspire S24-880 into a second monitor? 
I tried using HDMI-in cable connected to VGA cable then to my laptop. I pressed monitor button but only black screen appears. What I want to know is, whether its possible because other brands have published on their website that's possible but I can't find any on Acer website. If anyone who has tried before and could assist, I appreciate the info sharing. Thank you very much.

    Hi @analogue

    As per the system specifications given in acer website: https://www.acer.com/ac/en/AE/content/model/DQ.BA9EM.001 this device comes with 1 HDMI input and 1 HDMI output port. 

    If you are looking to use this device as second screen then connect the HDMI cable to HDMI input port on this device and simply use the commands "Windows + P" and check by duplicating the display. If you do not see any change look for a button next to HDMI ports this button would allow you to toggle display from internal and external.
