When thinking of a PC with a multiple-monitor setup, it is easy to visualize TV shows and movies with the computer hacker in front of screens full of numbers and code. However, the use of multiple monitors has become far more common in the workplace and is something that many people swear by.
Multiple Monitors Offer Many Advantages
Multiple monitors offer advantages in many different industries, provided they are used to complement your workflow. One obvious advantage is being able to see multiple windows simultaneously, giving the user the ability to input data into a spreadsheet or database without switching between tabs to refer to data. If it is important to keep an eye on an email chain or a chat with coworkers, then leaving one screen dedicated to communication allows regular work to be continued. Multiple monitors are a great addition to anyone’s desk space. Having the ability to spread out many of the programs that are required to do your jobs decreases screen clutter and, in turn, can make your brain feel less overwhelmed with what is in front of you.
Multiple monitors are especially useful when working remotely as they provide flexibility during video calls and virtual presentations, allowing users to take notes or keep an eye on their inbox while being actively involved in their meeting. Portable monitors are available now making this more feasible for use both at the office and at home.
