How to connect 5 Monitors on a MACBOOK or WINDOWS #dualmonitors #macbook
Set up Your Ultimate Home Office Desk
In this blog, I will guide you on how to set up a multi-screen home office, step by step, and recommend the best supplies to use for an efficient setup. As someone who has been using multiple monitors since 2016, I can attest to their efficiency and ease of use. With multiple screens, you can multitask while you work, watch a movie, keep track of your daily planner, and more.
To set up a multi-screen home office, you'll need a good computer or laptop to connect all the screens to. I use a 15-inch MacBook Pro Retina, and I can say that a strong computer is crucial for managing multiple monitors seamlessly and avoiding any frozen pages.
Having an L-shaped work table is very convenient as it provides ample space to organize your stuff. An even better version of my table can be found in the link provided in the description. Additionally, having extra storage nearby is always a plus.
For monitors, I recommend the Sceptre brand 24-inch screens for vertical use, as they are thin, high-quality, and affordable. I also use two ASUS MG28U gaming monitors and one ACER monitor for vertical use. My setup also includes a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse, and a large mouse pad for extra comfort.
To support my multiple monitors, I have two different dual monitor holders - one that attaches to my desk and one that is a free-standing holder with a phone holder.
To connect all the screens to your MacBook, you'll need cables. Most commonly, you will need one basic 8k display port and either two USB-C to VGA adapters, along with VGA cables for each monitor. Keep in mind, VGA cables usually come with each monitor when you purchase it. You'll also need a laptop docking station, which is the most crucial part of connecting all your screens to your laptop. The one I recommend works with both Mac and Windows.
With all the main components in place, it's time to set everything up. First, set up your monitor holder and attach each monitor to it. Before connecting the cables, set up the laptop docking station. Make sure your laptop is up to date, connect the cables, and go to the website "plugable.com". From there, click "support", then "drivers", select "docks", and find the "displaylinks drivers". After set up, you may need to make a few small adjustments in the settings.
To finalize the setup, go to "System Preferences", click "Security & Privacy", scroll down, and choose "Screen Recording". Then, click on the "Displaylink Manager". Now, you're ready to connect all your cables. To organize the screens, go to "System Preferences", click "Display", and you'll see all the connected screens. When you click on each screen, you'll see a red mark, and you can drag them to arrange them as you like. To make a screen vertical, right-click on the desired screen, go to "Display Settings", choose "Rotation 270", and click "Done".
Before ending this blog, I would like to recommend three more items that will make your dream home office complete. You'll need a power strip for your cables, a laptop holder for your notes, and a comfortable office chair. Check the links below for the recommended products.
Having multiple screens is incredibly helpful for those who spend a lot of time on their computer. Once you get used to it, you'll find it difficult to go back to using just one screen. I also recommend a portable dual screen for those who are always on the go. It's super convenient to take with you to Starbucks or any other location and use it when needed.
