At Innovatively Organized, we are big proponents of using two monitors to help increase productivity at work. We have two monitors set up in our office so we can view and work on multiple documents at once. If you are wondering whether you could benefit from using multiple monitors, check out our previous blog post, “Do Multiple Computer Monitors Make You More Productive?”
But if you already have multiple monitors, we’re excited to share a few more ways you can customize your monitor set-up! Here are two ways you can use your double computer monitors to boost your efficiency while working:
Switch the screen orientation
As pictured above, you can change one of your monitors into a vertical position. This technique is most frequently used by accounting and legal firms because it helps to view spreadsheets in the portrait view. If you usually work with long spreadsheets or legal documents, you might consider changing the orientation of one of your screens to help you view more at once.
Duplicate your screens
This option is great for meetings with a client or team member—you can face one of your screens towards your audience while the other one remains facing you. This way, you can display the same exact screen without everyone huddling over one monitor to view it.
