If you are technology geek, blogger, editor or content creator you can improve your productivity with multiple monitor display setup. You have at least one LCD or LED display with your computer at this time. Adding one more monitor will surely improve the screen real estate. More screen means more area to work with. If you have any experience with office software or with photo or video editor software or when writing something on the screen, you may feel how hard it is to open up a reference page or image folder each time to refer or select something. The other window may be below of the active window. So you have to click and active it each time or you need to minimize your active window or want to maximize your reference window, either way it is a herculean task to edit a page or to create some artwork with a single monitor. You can plug an additional monitor to your computer if the motherboard supports multiple monitors. First check the mother board features and check whether it supports multiple monitor or not. If yes, check the type of connectors available, now most motherboard have VGA, DVI and HDMI ports. One of he port is now engaged with your present monitor, check the other display port available and obtain connectors for it to connect your new monitor.
Just plug the new monitor and the Windows will automatically detect the new monitor and extends the desktop onto it. Now you can simply drag drop windows between monitors. There are several ways to configure your monitors. PC Screen only: Here Windows will only use your primary monitor, and the other monitors won’t use and appears black. Duplicate: Here Windows OS will show the same image on other monitor. This is useful if you want to present something to someone, so both people can see the same Window. Extend: In this setting the display will enlarge and extend giving room for another screen to work with you.
