As a person who is constantly on my computer working on multiple projects at the same time, it could get messy having to switch between windows with Alt+Tab keyboard shortcut or never-ending mouse clicks. Having multiple monitors means more screen space. More space allows a user to have more programs running at the same time. You can easily navigate between the monitors if you need to interact with a program. Or from time to time, run a show while getting work done on the primary screen. Here is how you can set up your monitors seamlessly with Windows 11.

Connect Monitors With Windows 11

  1. Open the Windows icon on the bottom left.
  2. Click on the Settings icon or open Settings with the Win+I keyboard shortcut.

Extra Settings
