    Hi @ColinSmith123 that model does not support DP on the USB-C port. I leave the references of the community about this question, anyway, please wait for more answers:

    Seems like a design oversight to not "future proof" this series. The Intel 620 GPU supports 4k @60hz. The Type C v3.1 port suppports the bandwidth. But Acer chose not to build in the required Display Port or Thunderbolt functionaitly. I do understand… this is a budget laptop.

    I guess I am limited to 1440. It is not the end of the world for business apps.

    Thanks for the quick response.

    You're welcome friend, sorry for the inconvenience.
    In the first of the references that I put, they give alternatives, look at them to see if any of them can be worth it and it is interesting, although they have disadvantages compared to a native DP.

    All the best.
