Opening a file on your USB key to use on the Interactive Digital Display

This article will walk you through the process of opening a file from your USB key on the Interactive Digital Display. An easy way to use your files (PowerPoint, Word, Excel, video, etc.) on the Interactive Digital Display is to use a USB Key.

1. Insert your USB key into the Interactive Digital Display.

If you have a USB-A key, you can use one of the USB slots in the bottom right corner of the Interactive Digital Display.
