The HP Elite x3 Desk Dock works as a charging station for your phone, and it gives you the option to connect your HP Elite x3 to a monitor, TV, or other display, using the Microsoft Continuum feature. You can also connect a keyboard and mouse to the desk dock for use on an external display. These features give you the option to move between a mobile experience and a PC experience, depending on your needs.

Use the following steps to set up the desk dock:

  1. Connect the AC adapter to the desk dock, then connect the AC adapter to a working power outlet.
  2. To charge your HP Elite x3, sit the handset in the desk dock.

Connecting to an external display using Microsoft Continuum

Microsoft Continuum is a feature that allows you to connect your phone to a larger display, creating a more productive work environment. Use supported apps (Office apps, for example) from your phone on the external display.
To connect your HP Elite x3 to an external display with the Microsoft Continuum feature, use the following steps:
1. If you are using a TV as the display, make sure the input is set to the corresponding cable type (DisplayPort, for example).
2. The desk dock comes with a DisplayPort connection. Connect a DisplayPort cable or adapter to the desk dock, then connect the same cable (if using DisplayPort on the external display) or the adapter cable to the display.
