helps in increasing your Productivity.
According to researches, the size of the screen does not affect your
productivity. It takes only 1.5 seconds to change multiple documents already
open on the computer. It doesn’t sound much, but when you calculate, you
already have spent lots of hours in a week by just switching between one
document and another. What if you don’t have to switch at all? What if all the
records were open on the same sight and at the same time?
How can you boost your productivity by using multiple screens:
Switching between tabs and windows doesn’t take a lot of time; it just takes a second, but if you try to calculate the time spent each day, month, and year, it will be a lot more, and surely there is a more efficient way to work.
Calculate how long does it takes to switch between one tab or window to another. A University of Utah study found out that people working on multiple screens were 6% quicker at getting on with the job, 7% faster at doing the assignments, 10% more productive, and had 33% fewer errors. Multiple Screens are 24% more comfortable to use, 45% easier to keep track of tasks, 28% easier to focus on the functions, and 38% easier to move around the data.

Picture and Video Editors:
Zoom in, out or around by having enough space and without missing a pixel. Place editing material on one screen and use others for
editing. Use a different monitor to view images for setting colors and
resolutions. Mistakes can be prevented in the video when viewing the video in
full size before burning to Blu-ray or DVD.
