Here are some things you’ll be able to do:
- Research the Net on one and drag the information to the other.
- View your Outlook calendar on one and email on the other.
- Read instructions on one and perform the steps on the other.
- Launch your PowerPoint show onto one monitor, make the changes on your computer and see the changes as they happen in Slide Show view.
- And so much more!
Note: Under the instruction “to move items between monitors” add the following:
- Double-click the top of a display screen (your blue bar) to resize your screen (Restore).
- Then drag an item on your desktop across your screen until it appears on the other monitor.
You will love using dual monitors. It’ll take you a few minutes to get used to it, but you’ll be glad you did. To take it to another level, purchase a monitor that you can swivel to portrait view (here is one on Amazon by NEC).
One more thing: to view your Outlook calendar on one monitor and email on the other, right-click the Calendar icon, Open in New Window. Then drag the calendar to the other monitor.
If you went from one monitor to two or more, let me know how much it has helped. Or once you set yours up, let me know what you think.
