I’ve recently discovered, working with two monitors whilst doing a PhD is a must. I’ve also been trying to work out how to make working with two screens more efficient. My issue was every time I shut down my laptop, what was on each screen would lose its place. That’s when I came across DisplayFusion by Binary Fortress. Now each time I turn it on, the applications that were previously on each screen, stay there. I would highly recommend downloading it. Binary Fortress are on Twitter so if you have any issues (like I did), they are very quick to help and easily explain things.
