Setting up two screens to work from home
I’m looking for something to put two screens on so that I can connect them to a laptop when working from home but am after something that can easily be folded up and put away.

Most things I’ve looked at are big and permanent . Can anyone recommend something compact that can be easily moved and stowed away ? Thanks

if you want something ultra portable you can use an ipad. There is an app that converts it into a second pc screen. It costs about £8.

Actually, just read up on using VR, scrap that it sounds like it would be very uncomfortable to use for long periods

Stubbo that has piqued my interest. Can’t touch type but it can’t be too difficult to learn. If not then as you say there must be keyboard overlays out there. Cheers!

Can you touch type?

If so a Quest 2 VR headset with ImmersedVR could work. Can display you laptop sceen plus an additional screen inside the headset at pretty much any size you want and is portable (since it just sits in your head).

As described the issue is in the typing, although i think they do some kind of funky physical keyboard virtual overlay now too.

Will be the future of screens one way or another at some point.

Try using a TV/Monitor Mount and fix them to the wall.

You can then just push them flat against the wall when not required.

Personally I use a Kensington USB Docking Station, Connected to Laptop in Desk Draw and 2 monitors.

Have the Laptop set up to do nothing when lid closes. This way all I have on the desk is a Keyboard/Mouse and Usb Docking station

That's what I do as well.
Just stash the monitor under the kitchen table when I don't need it.

Projectors are fairly noisy beasts - we had them in our meeting rooms here but soon swapped them out for big, fuck-off flat screen TVs.

If you've got a fairly modern TV you may be able to "project" to that.

Re: Setting up two screens to work from home
My work laptop is small, and shit though mike. Although your post has got me thinking if a
projector might help me do the job of 2 screens??

Re: Setting up two screens to work from home
No need for anything if the laptop has a video/HDMI port. I've currently got a laptop with a big, fuck-off monitor hung off it and it works perfectly well in 2-screen mode.

Re: Setting up two screens to work from home
I’d rather stand Mike so need something that is adjustable to accommodate that

You’ll need a splitter.

It's probably more important that you're sat on a proper work/office chair rather than a kitchen or dining chair (or, heaven forbid, a sofa or easy chair).

Re: Setting up two screens to work from home
This doodaa looks promising, I don’t think there is anything that can be folded away quickly or easily but this seems like the best option out of those that I have seen

Re: Setting up two screens to work from home
Closest you’ll get is a dual monitors stand with adjustable arms, but even then I don’t think I’ve ever seen one where you would be able to fold an entire monitor away

Re: Setting up two screens to work from home
Thanks MMG that’s the kind of thing I’m looking at, if there’s something like that that can be packed up and put away easily and vice versa then that’s ideal

I live in a flat and a lap room plus two large screens and all the cables, mouse etc takes up a lot of space

Re: Setting up two screens to work from home
I work on a low table so just have the screen on top of a plastic packing case weighed down with some books to keep it steady.
Only using one screen as like looking out the window!

Re: Setting up two screens to work from home
I’m concerned with the apparatus used to attach the screens so that they are at eye level , screen stands?

Re: Setting up two screens to work from home
Is this one screen for work and one for watching Chaturbate?
