Dual 4k Screens now up and running

As I explained back in January when I purchased my first 4k screen and blogged about it then with 4k Screen, Developer for the User Of, a developer cannot have enough screen space and also real desk space to work with.

I have retained a 1920 x 1200 screen in order to focus on one (Visual Studio or SSMS) window, but the other screen serves as desk space rather than having everything minimized and more difficult to get at.

Since moving house last week I have wired up my two dev PC’s in such a way that the 4K screens can be used by either PC (they typically have multiple inputs and can either do split screen or full screen on one of the inputs).

So now I have both PC’s with one 1920 x 1200 and 2 4k screens. The Windows font size has been set at 125% in order that the text on the 4k screens is not too small. See below for results:

Serious Developer Screen Space

About Phil

I have been working as a software developer since 1983. This blog could have been called "From Fortran 77, C and Cobol to C# in 20 (not so) easy years", but it doesn't sound quite right somehow. Besides I'm talking about what's happened since 2003, not before!
