A Technology Tip

On many occasions over the years I have written and spoken about the benefits of using two monitors in a law office setting – for both lawyers and staff.
Once you try two monitors, you will never go back. Having two monitors makes the preparation of documents, particularly complicated legal documents, much easier. When you can have the document you’re drafting on one screen and your legal research dualmonitors results on the other, it becomes a snap to cut and paste text directly from one to the other. Turn one of the monitors ninety degrees (“portrait” orientation). This allows you to view a complete page of a document at normal size without squinting. You could also use a second monitor to monitor your email.
And beyond making your drafting easier and faster, you will find you will save money as you will be printing less.
Unless your computer is truly a dinosaur, it’s pretty much plug and play to add that second screen. Even most laptops will easily accept a second monitor when you go into your display settings and select that option.
Monitors are fairly inexpensive to start with today, and you can save even more money if you buy a second monitor as part of the bundle when you buy a new computer.
Make the switch to two monitors – you will never look back.
