This article explains how to turn “Use dual monitors” on or off in the Zoom app on Windows 11.
Zoom is a video conferencing and online meeting platform that allows users to connect remotely. It offers video and audio conferencing, screen sharing, and recording features.
Another setting that users can configure in the Zoom app is to turn “Use dual monitors” on or off. Participants’ videos and screen shares will be displayed on separate screens when this is turned on.
Users may want to turn on or off dual monitors in Zoom for various reasons. Some users may prefer using a single monitor for video conferencing sessions. In contrast, others may find it more convenient to use dual monitors to view the participants’ videos and shared screens simultaneously.
Additionally, turning on dual monitors can be helpful when presenting slides or documents during a meeting, as it allows the presenter to view the content on one screen while seeing the participants’ reactions on the other.
Ultimately, it depends on the user’s preference and use case.
Turn “Use dual monitors” on or off in Zoom
As mentioned above, if you have dual monitors and want to view the participants’ videos and shared screens simultaneously, you can turn on this feature in Zoom.
