On Having 2 Monitors

I have 2 monitors on my laptop computer. It’s nice. Here’s info about my second monitor:

AOC 15.6″ USB powered monitor
ClickMonitorDDC
Displaylink driver

I set up ClickMonitorDDC so I could change the brightness of both monitors easily. Info here. I also set it up to change the volume easily.

I had an, apparently common problem where sometimes the screen would restart repeatedly. To fix it, I disabled “USB Selective Suspend” and upgraded to the December 2019 Displaylink drivers. That fixed it. There’s more tips on fixing that problem here in case my fix doesn’t do it.

I bought 2 of those USB-powered monitors so I don’t have to drag it from home to work each day. That was nice.
