Why do advanced IT specialists use two monitors per computer at once?

For maximum productivity, advanced users can use two monitors in their work, which are connected to one computer.

Initially, programmers introduced the "fashion" for two monitors, and then the scheme of working with two monitors is more and more common even in small offices.

In what cases can two monitors be useful to the user?

- Two independent desktops. One in the left monitor, the other in the right. It is very convenient to switch between them and even transfer files and objects from one to another.

- We work on one monitor, look at the necessary information on the other. You don't have to constantly switch windows. It is especially useful when the user works with large amounts of information.

- Programmers write code in one screen, and in the other they look at the result of their work and do tests. Also, the second screen can be used to view documentation for a programming language or project.

- Dual screens can also be convenient for "background" video viewing. Yes, you can attach the player to the monitor you are working on, but it can still be distracting from work.

You can use two monitors of the same size or different. It is more convenient to use two monitors of the same size with the option to extend the desktop.

Also, a common arrangement is when monitors are cascaded - one slightly behind the other, which is convenient for background video viewing.
