When I got a new laptop, I added the old monitor and it's been amazing! I can't believe how I functioned without it! I love having a second monitor! Great training! Alanna

Thank you Alana, that is exactly what I did. I went from a pc to a laptop so I already had the monitor and the cable. It sat downstairs on a shelf for a long time until my husband mentioned me using dual displays. It has been great!

Thank you for the compliant about the training. I truly appreciate it.

I'll have to do that at some point. Right now it's multiple files, tabs and split screens!

I absoulutely hated using the split screens on my laptop. Having the larger screen as my main display and then the laptop as my secondary has been much easier for me to be more productive.
