Do you remember the saying "two heads are better than one"? Well, the same thing applies to monitors. By increasing the visible space on your desktop, you can highly improve your efficiency with almost any work task such as day trading, audio recording, video editing, medical imaging etc.. I have been using Multiple Monitors for years, and I have noticed a true increase in productivity, every time I upgrade to a system to support more monitors. So far I have Eight monitors on my main computer and four on my side kick pc. Many people who have never used a multi-monitor PC may not understand the true advantage of this technology, and dismiss the idea as novel. On the other hand, an individual who utilizes multiple monitors knows about the power of visualization and organization, and feels as if they have discovered a wonderful secret for business multi-tasking.
For Example: You can view charts on one screen and run your trading software on another. If you use more than two screens, you can watch your live news streams on a third monitor or perform internet research. You can also copy and paste across monitors, rather than maximizing and minimizing windows.
2) You can get a “USB to VGA Adapter”, or “USB to DVI Adapter” that will allow you to add an extra monitor to your computer via any USB2.0 Port. You can also add multiple extra monitors by using multiple adapters. This is a great option for viewing documents, surfing the web, using Microsoft Office and many other business tasks. This is not a good option for intense graphical situations such as HDTV, Blu-ray, Gaming and 3D / CAD Workstation applications. For those types of scenarios, it is highly recommended that you purchase a high-powered Multi-monitor Workstation.
3) You can replace or add an extra video card to your existing computer, depending on how many monitors you wish to support. Although this sounds easy enough, this is a rather complex solution for a beginner, especially when trying to find a compatible graphics card. For this reason, I am going to write an entirely seperate post on that topic and will link to it here, very soon.
Once you have your multiple monitor system set up and ready to use, you will need to enable all of your monitors in your “Display Properties” Control Panel. Here is a great link to a complete and animated walkthrough of how to enable your multiple monitors in the Windows Control Panel.
