    @arsy123 just for the fun basically.. but for music producers and visual designers its more of a tool than the fun itself thus in order to run 2 or more softwares at the same time without the need of resizing the windows all the time.Its just easier to work.

    @mijntube12 Yes, why else would they put it there? Well are the two connections the same like are they both dvi or vga or hdmi or or they two different ones like one is dvi and the other is vga and so on? they would have to be the same i think.

    Wanna make two slices of toast, instead of one? I’m gonna tell you how you can have both slices of toast without breaking the bank and buying a second toaster. What you’ll need is some bread and a dual-slice toaster. I cannot stress this enough – you’ll want to ask the sales clerk for a DUAL-SLICE toaster. It’s also vitally important that the toaster has a 2 pin power plug (if you’re in the US) and is designed to run on electricity.

    More of the same next week.

    @slimjimeth
    it depends on your Operating System ( XP, Vista, Windows 7) but generally speaking you will need to adjust the settings to make them extend to each other OR to duplicate or clone each other and that’s how you do it
