Extended main Hoster Screen

Hi all Hoster users. Not a lot going on at the moment with us all in lockdown so Thought I would take this opportunity to show my recent new addition to my setup using an extended USB C monitor which allows me to view more open windows without them being hidden or minimised.

I attach screen shot from a recent show prior to lockdown, On the extended monitor I show the BA to the right, SBDB plug in on main area, it also has Edge explorer set to open https://db.openkj.org/search for if I need to find a downloadable song without obscuring the main computers setup.

I originally made a video of setting this up prior to using it and stacked the second monitor above main computer but after more experimenting found it best to setup side by side. link to original video: https://youtu.be/1_C97up1xUg
I am really pleased how it works, The monitor needs no extra power as it runs of the USB connector.

Very nice Roy. I\'ve been thinking of doing this since your original post. Just to lazy I guess but who knows, maybe I\'ll get of my duff and get it done!
