My Wife recently started to work from home and she is wanting to connect another monitor to her brand new Nitro 5. They say its pretty common sense but I cant figure it out.

    So on the side of the laptop should be one HDMI port , you can use that to connect to most monitors, or get an adapter to change it from hdmi to what your monitor supports 

    If you need more than two displays, you need to use a display link product, these work by running a display over one of the USB3 ports and come either as a dock, a dongle , or a full screen :)
