I work on thre displays (17" laptop + 2x24"), so her is my solution. Laptop - best idea is to have it on stand with display aligned bottom to external screen - it is the easiest way to maintain head on same level and use eyes na little right-left move of your head in horizontal. Also - put main screen on external display, because checking time and starting ...

I would suggest option A as the user is more like not to consider the physical location in any more detail than "left screen or right screen" Also, generally, when connecting a laptop to an external screen, the laptop should still form the 'primary' screen as this is the one you will use more often than the external screen: you'll use it when you're not ...

As with most questions, I guess context and the individual user preference has a lot to do with what the 'best' answer might be. However, I am offering a way to consider how you might come up with that decision. The first thing you need to think about is the relationship between the devices. I read a good reference article by Luke Wroblewski on the subject ...

I tried many configurations both at home and at work and I found that setting my laptop and external monitor vertically aligned made the most sense and it was easier on my neck. Voila option D (forgive me if this solution has already been proposed) In my specific case I handle all browsing/email typing in my laptop screen while tasks that require a ...

Use the physical layout.... It's disruptive to a user to move the mouse offscreen and have it appear in a different location. This is even more frustrating when dragging objects,since they end up in a different place on the new screen. ...but it's better to rearrange the screens first First, for Windows machines (which the screenshot indicates), the ...

Option A. 1: People are so used to virtual space mapping differently to normal space that when they do match more closely it could cause confision. Consider the gulf between the two screens and it could really be argued that the two don't line up in a straight line anyway- why can't the bridge between them be diagonal? They're two completely seperate ...

In my multi-monitor setup, I use option b). I want cursor to appear where I would expect it when moving it across the monitors.

This does bubble up a few questions: Why does a list of items need a copyright sign? It's meant for the articles (or whatever the site is about) and not the list, so why not just place it with the articles only. Why do terms of use, privacy policy, copyright etc. always have to be in a footer? My answer is to use the copyright sign only where it is ...

Users don't care about legal footers. Only lawyers do. If you are working on a user-focused UI, put a link to legal information somewhere else. If you are working on a truly user-focused product, fire the lawyers.

I suggest pushing for a more meaningful call to action in a fixed position bar. I've seen various websites using infinite scrolling and I've never noticed prioritizing the legal aspect of the footer. It surprises me they want to prioritize legal information. However, if there's user test results suggesting that the legal pages are visited often, this ...

First of all, try to categorize your actions in groups like 'Primary', 'secondary' actions. Primary actions - 'Create Order' and 'Add new item' Secondary action - 'Cancel' Think about 'Accordance' of these action buttons on the basis of primary and secondary. (as shown in image below) You can also use 'Floating' buttons or FAB for 'Add New Item'. Let me ...

Put it in a grid 3x3 below. It will be much easier to handle - you will shorten the distance. Take a look at photoshop swatches for order. Also consider names for colors on roll over / title="red" - 10% of males are color-blind.

I would say option A(or B). It's a good visualization of which colors is available and that it's connected to the color selected by the user. The mouse movement for selecting another color is way better for this option compared to for example option C or D. Moving the mouse straight to the right(preferred by me as a right handed person) or to the left is ...
