Dual monitor PC help

  athertpa 11:32 01 Nov 2009


I have recently built a new pc and have hooked up a new 22 inch widescreen lcd monitor and my dol 19 inch monitor. I have set vista up so that both monitors are displayed but now what?

How can I make the most of having dual monitors? Is there programs etc that make the most of this? Or ideally and free utilities?

All you do is set the display properties to extend the desktop to the second monitor.

You can then have different programs on different screens for instance you can watch a DVD on one screen while having a photo editing program on the other, good for snap shotting and editing DVD screen shots.

Only problem is you need four eyes and two brains to take in the info or decrypt it
