Benefits of Having a Dual Monitor Setup for Your Business

Benefits of Having a Dual Monitor Setup for Your Business

In recent years, the use of advanced technology in the office has increased in popularity among businesses to improve their efficiency, productivity, and effectiveness. Whether running a small or large company, it is important to know that utilizing a dual monitor setup in your office can provide quite a few advantages.

Effortless Research

It is very useful for employees who conduct research on a regular basis to have a second monitor at their disposal. By using two monitors at once, employees can view different sources at the same time, rather than having to switch between other tabs on their screen. This results in a more meaningful and effective comparison, which produces a higher quality product.

Work Efficiently

It can be challenging to manage multiple applications with only one monitor. A multitasking environment needs enough screen space to maintain multiple applications at once. Using a dual monitor setup, employees won’t have to scroll up and down the screen or resize windows to fit the information they need into the limited space available. Users can achieve greater accuracy when working with dual monitors because of the increased visibility the dual monitors provide.

Increase Productivity

According to studies, employees can also boost their productivity by up to 30% when using dual monitors in their workstations. As a result, employees will be able to work more efficiently as they won’t have to switch tabs as often, so they’ll be able to accomplish more tasks more quickly.

A dual monitor system allows users to display multiple applications simultaneously on the same screen, including web browsing, email, and multimedia. Using dual monitors at the workplace can help employees become more efficient and productive by enhancing their efficiency and productivity.

New AI Upgrades to Adobe Photoshop and Premiere Elements

While Premiere Elements 2023 is receiving a couple of new features and a considerable speed boost, Photoshop Elements 2023 adds some powerful new features and enhanced performance. Along with these enhancements, both editors have been given a boost from Adobe Sensei, the company’s universal AI.

Adobe’s mission is to make video and photo editing more efficient, regardless of the user’s skill level.

The latest editions of the Elements software rely heavily on artificial intelligence. For example, thanks to the new AI implementations, one of the most eye-catching editing features in the new Photoshop Elements 2023 is the ability to convert still images into moving photos.

Adobe demonstrated how easy it is to add movement elements to still pictures. This demonstration showed how you could quickly add animation to bring a waterfall picture to life. All you have to do is select the Moving Elements tool, choose the region to be animated, and specify the movement’s direction. The newly released Photoshop Elements also includes an excellent range of overlays, patterns, backgrounds, and other features.

As for the video editing software, Premiere Elements 2023 will automatically recognize faces and tag videos, making it easier to find friends and family for compilation videos. Another handy feature is auto-reframe; this feature lets you switch between portrait and landscape modes without sacrificing any of the crucial details of the scene. The last features worth mentioning are the different aesthetic effects that can be applied to a video clip and the Auto-Creations feature that automates editing.

The introduction of a three-way “connected experience” has also been announced by Adobe. With the release of web and mobile apps for iOS and Android, users can now view and share media on their mobile devices. In addition, users can make basic edits from a browser.

In addition to the new features, Adobe claims that these new versions are lighter than last year’s versions and that the software launches 50% faster. They also claim that installs are now 35% faster.

Each application is priced at $100 or $80 if upgrading from a previous version. The two applications can be purchased in a bundle for $150 or upgraded for $120.


Windows 11 2022 Update

Microsoft released the “first major update” for Windows 11 on Tuesday, September 20, 2022, as Windows 11 nears its first anniversary. According to a blog posted by Microsoft, the Windows 11 update focuses on four key areas:

● Making the PC easier and safer to use for everyone
● Empowering people to be more productive
● Making Windows the best place to connect, create and play
● Delivering added security, management, and flexibility to the workplace

Microsoft is committed to making computers more accessible. An added accessibility feature includes system-wide live captions to automatically generate captions from any form of audio content on Windows 11.

Windows 11 also includes snap layouts which have become a game changer for multitasking by helping users optimize their applications and documents. In addition, Microsoft introduced Focus sessions and Do Not Disturb to assist in minimizing distractions.

Advanced artificial intelligence features significantly improve the new Windows Studio camera and audio effects. The Voice Focus, background blur, eye contact, and automatic framing features can assist users in conference calls and content creation.

According to Microsoft, “Windows 11 provides layers of hardware and software integration for powerful, out-of-the-box protection from the moment you start your device – and we’re
continuing to innovate.” For example, within the Windows 11 update is the launch of Microsoft Defender SmartScreen. Microsoft Defender SmartScreen will alert users when their login credentials are entered on a malicious application or website.

The Windows 11 2022 is packed with many subtle changes that all come together to boost
productivity and empower creativity. The changes include enhancements to the file explorer, photo applications, taskbar overflow, and much more.

Microsoft Windows users can access the new features by updating and restarting their
computers. To begin the update for Windows 11 2022, users can go to the start menu, select settings, then choose update and security from the list of options. Next, users are taken to the menu, where they can update and restart their computer immediately or schedule the restart.

Updating to Windows 11, users can experience all the newly added and improved on applications to increase productivity while protecting from known vulnerabilities.

Windows 11 Gets New Taskbar Overflow Option

Are you the type of person who is in the habit of keeping all their apps open?  If so, you’re going to love a recent addition to Windows 11.

In a bid to make finding your open apps easier, once you’ve run out of room on the Windows Taskbar, they’ve introduced a new “taskbar overflow” feature.  It’s a three-dot menu that appears when there’s no more space on the taskbar that hides all the other apps you are running that don’t have room to be displayed there.

This is a vast improvement over the Windows 10 overflow, which only shows the most recent app that has been used or has been opened.

If you’re not a power user, you probably won’t even notice the change. If you are, once you give the new feature a try you’ll probably wonder how you ever got along without it.  In our view, it’s right up there with tabbed browsing.  It’s something that doesn’t seem at first glance like it would make much of a difference, but its impact is profound.

There has been quite a lot of that kind of thinking going into the design of Windows 11, and we have to say we’re impressed by the way the new OS is shaping up so far.  If this and other small but important innovations are any indication (and we absolutely believe that they are) then Windows 11 is going to be an absolute game changer when it’s released.

Kudos to Microsoft for really going the extra mile both in terms of updating and modernizing the overall Windows aesthetic and also for putting their collective thinking caps on and coming up with solutions to problems that really detract from the overall user experience.  Keep up the good work, and Windows 11 is going to be amazing.
