Are you someone who likes to have a lot of information in front of them at once? Do you feel like you’re missing out on some important task or project when your only monitor is taken up by one window? If so, it might be time for you to invest in dual monitors!
Dual monitors can give you the extra screen space that you need to keep everything organized and in front of you. Not only can this help improve your productivity, but it can also make multitasking a lot simpler. Here are a few tips on how to set up dual monitors:
- Decide if You Need Two Monitors: The first step is deciding if dual monitors are really right for you. Some people find that they don’t need the extra screen space and prefer working with just one monitor. Others find that they can’t live without two screens!

Make sure to place them side-by-side horizontally (or stacked vertically) so that both screens are easily visible from where you’ll be sitting at your desk. You may also want to adjust their height accordingly until they’re both at eye level.

Go into Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Display and select “Change display settings.” Under “Multiple displays,” choose “Extend these displays” then click on the checkbox next to “Show desktop only on 2” which will allow us to control what’s displayed on each screen independently. Now we’ll move on to configuring each individual monitor…
5.. Configure Monitor 1 (Left): On our first monitor (which will likely be positioned on the left), we want all of our open windows/programs to take up as much space as possible while still leaving some room for our taskbar at the bottom. To do this, go into Settings > System > Display and change Orientation from Landscape (default)to Portrait. Doing this will force all programs/windows width
