Featured Product — Multiple Monitors

DuelMonitorsAt Help Desk Cavalry, we know that our clients are always looking for ways of improving their efficiency when it comes to how their computers are used. Before you consider upgrading your workstation to a more powerful version, consider the advantages of upgrading to a dual monitor setup. A dual monitor setup is essentially an extension of your visual workspace, giving you more space to place programs and windows. With the right components, some workstations can support 2, 3, even 4 monitors! Make sure to ask Help Desk Cavalry how many monitors your workstation can support!

Though there are virtually unlimited advantages and applications of a multiple monitor setup, I will briefly list some of the key and most commonly used advantages. By having multiple monitors, a person can run several applications simultaneously. For instance, on the left-hand screen, you can have your email program, while on the right-hand screen browse the web or use a line of business application. Users who need to have several programs open at the same time will find that not having to Alt+Tab between programs will make referencing information a breeze, while having an entire monitor dedicated to a primary application and the other for whatever program is needed at that moment can save a lot of time. Likewise, having multiple screens allows for easy comparisons between files. Having a tutorial video open while working a document on the other screen is a frequent occurrence around the Help Desk offices.

Most workstations and laptops can run at least 2 monitors, and while the setup may require the assistance of a Help Desk Cavalry technician, once they are set up they rarely requires any troubleshooting. The settings for the additional displays are even in the same location! Using multiple monitors requires little to no training, as it merely extends the workspace of the computer. Dragging files and windows between the monitors is easy and the system will remember which monitor you opened which program on for future use.

One of the best uses for additional monitors is the ability to utilize docking stations to add screens to a laptop. By merely attaching a USB plug or two to almost any laptop, you can have access to additional screens, a separate keyboard and mouse, speakers, or additional storage devices. This setup is especially useful to users who take their laptops with them and want to have the workstation experience when at the office.

If you feel that having additional monitors would improve your efficiency, contact Help Desk Cavalry today for a consultation!
