    I currently use a 32" monitor with two HDMI inputs and switch between the two. Or use extra monitors with other systems too.

    All of us at the shop run win7 64 pro, win10 has gotten alot better and theres alot of 3rd party out there to remove its most insidious spying but I will run win 7 as long as I can.

    Micro Soft says there will never be another version of windows, just win10 upgraded

    I will try swapping out video cables. I have speakers on the table but they are closer to the other monitor.

    Try changing the background in the second monitor. If that doesn't work go to ComputerGeeks.
