CX, one can also use a usb hub like this one. From the image I'm sure you can discern it's function.
One thing to check on is what inputs your monitor takes. Many new laptops are HDMI output.

Yeah, I got at least one of those laying about, Dave. My experience was that they caused things to slow down considerably when in use. Could be just perception, but I think it was actually making a difference.

Still had to use one when out in the mountains doing owl research on accounta having stuff connected for our mapping and GPS programs and such.

This HDMI output means I'm now gonna need to get new monitor and keyboard, too? Hate it when they do that sorta thing.

CX,

No need for changing monitors or keyboards; the two series I recommended include SVGA output connector for driving one standard monitor along with three standard format USB ports. For multiple monitor configuration there are plenty of docking options (see previous post) available that connect to the laptop via USB C support SVGA, DVI and DisplayPort in addition to HDMI.

Regarding USB port extenders slowing down performance, that wouldn’t be an issue with a newer laptop with USB 3 ports. The port extender Dave posted is a good one; I find the ability to shut off specific ports with a press of a button very handy.

I didn't recognize those as buttons for that purpose, PC. I'm thinking that would be a useful feature.

Especially in a power limited off the grid situation!

USB3 is super fast,so you can plug all your gizmos into the hub then you only have to plug one thing into the laptop. I like it at work because I have to take my laptop to meetings several or more times a day. Easy in, easy out.

I just bought one of these for my Dell XPS laptop. I'm mostly on WiFi but there are times I'd like to be wired. The Dell I have doesn't have a standard network port but it does have USB-C, Thunderbolt. What I like about the Totu is it gives me back a bunch of options in one small device.

USB C Hub, Type C Hub, TOTU 11-in-1 Adapter with Ethernet, 4K USB C to HDMI, VGA, 2 USB3.0 2 USB2.0, Micro SD/TF Card Reader, Mic/Audio, USB-C PD 3.0, Compatible for Mac Pro and Other Type C Laptops
