  • If you plan to use your Joy-Cons for docked play, remove them from the sides of the console by holding the small black button on the back of each and carefully lift them free of the Switch. They’ll charge if it is still connected when the Switch is docked, which is helpful.

That’s it. If the Switch is not displaying on the screen, ensure that the power lead and HDMI cable are firmly inserted into the dock. If they’re loose, the Switch will continue to think it’s on in handheld mode and behave accordingly.
