If the resolution of your laptop is higher than the external monitor, how to set?
For windows: Windows Menu--> Setting--> Display--> Advanced Display Settings, set your laptop's resolution same as or lower the resolution of external monitor.
For MacOS: Left-upper Apple icon-->System Preferences-->Displays-->Mirror displays. Then your VGA monitor would mirror your Mac. However here you have two choices. One is "Optimize For" your built-in Retina Display, the other is "Optimize For" your VGA monitor. You can choose which one you like.
Is VGA adapter bi-directional?
No, the USB C to VGA adapter is not bi-directional. The USB C male of the adapter can be only connected to host devices supporting DisplayPort Alt Mode/thunderbolt 3 like laptops, and cellphones. It can't be connected to input devices like displays, and TV.
Is it normal to have to plug and unplug it to get it to work?
Normally you don't need to plug and unplug, but if you touched the cable or adapter, if they are not in a stable position, then you would need to plug and unplug them.
As a college prof I needed to connect my MBA M1 to an Epson projector in the classroom. This worked flawlessly! Great product!
This cable came in handy right when I need it at the most critical time. I just recommended this to someone one day ago.
