How Using an Ultrawide Monitor Boosted My Productivity (and Can Boost Yours)

The last time we discussed ultrawide monitors, the promise of one display on your desk that offered the benefits of two, or even three, was appealing. You get great horizontal real estate, clean up your cable mess, and enough room to keep multiple windows and applications open. Ideally, it’ll help you be more productive.

While appeal of a single, wide display meshes with my working style (lots of windows and apps open next to each other, hiding behind each other, and never one thing completely full-screened,) if that’s not you or you keep one window maximized at all times, a monitor like this probably isn’t for you (but this particular display has a few tricks you might like that we’ll get to later.) If you’re more like me though, you’re in for a treat.
