Cable/dock solution?

Hi

We have both a microsoft surface and an hp elite book....I have one monitor and would be using it as the output for one tablet at a time. The surface had the mini displayport and the hp has the usb c and a usb ....question is...is there a way I can connect both without having to remove the cable from the back of the monitor each time?

I currently have a mini displayport to hdmi cable and that's how the surface is connected.

Thanks!

If your monitor has a DP or mini-DP port, then use a proper DP cable for the Surface and USB-C to HDMI for the HP, and use the button on your monitor to switch sources as required.
