How to Work Effectively

This article will focus on the basic configurations of an office workstation with Two Monitors.

There are two basic settings for a dual monitor setup, "Mirrored" and "Extended." Each one offers distinct advantages. Mirroring aids in presenting and collaborative purposes, whereas Extension is useful for personal tasks and daily project management. Both settings are better than a single monitor approach in the IMI oppinion. We ourselves wouldn't work any other way.
