Windows XP is still the most widely used operating systems in the world. In Windows XP and their later versions, you can connect multiple monitors to a single computer. You can connect up to ten monitors to a single computer and you can select any monitor as the primary monitor. To enable the secondary monitors, you need to drag the items from one monitor to the other or you can resize the Windows to stretch it to more than one monitor. If you use an old desktop, you might need to install a video adapter to use the feature of multiple monitor. You can use the multiple monitor option in many of the laptops as well.
