Technology is constantly evolving to meet the needs and demands of a fast-paced world. The latest ideas are only good enough for a short amount of time, then there is something newer and better. There has been a major issue with the evolution of computer monitors in recent years. As they are made bigger, they get wider. The average person might not notice how this affects what you are able to see on the screen, but if you study the makeup of a computer you will notice some hints that point to the need for a vertical screen. Pages are meant to be moved up and down, it is difficult to work with multiple pages efficiently and writers may only view a small portion of their papers at a time. For these reasons, some are choosing to switch to vertical monitors. Here are a few of the many benefits.
Less White Space
Have you ever noticed that there is an abundance of white space around the web pages on your computer screen? This is due to the fact that most pages are meant to be seen on an upright, vertical projection, like the pages of a newspaper. When you think about it, nearly all sites that use a “feed” are scrolled up and down. These pages are modified to be seen on a widescreen, even though they were not created to be viewed in that manner. This gives an abundance of unused space, while taking away how much you are actually able to see. By switching to an upright screen, not only is this space used, but you are able to see more materials.
The ability to see more on your monitor can greatly increase your productivity. For instance, those who write are able to see much more of their work when using a vertical monitor, compared to a widescreen. This is also good news for people who frequently work off of multiple sources. Many find that it is much easier to keep up with a multitude of pages when they are stacked vertically. Comparing sites side by side is not as efficient.
Works Great with a Height-Adjustable Desk
Many people are switching to vertical in the office in more ways than one. Not only are computer monitors being flipped upright, but chairs are being pushed back and employees are choosing to stand. Standing at work provides a multitude of benefits, especially for health and well-being. This action can be paired with a vertical monitor for the ultimate productivity increase. You might find that you draw some attention in the office for a while, but soon everyone will be following your lead once the news of these ingenious ideas are out.
