I love using two screens but with a laptop it's not very practical as you carry it around and sometimes you hold it in different positions.
Toshiba had a line of ultra-wide laptops that seem to have been discontinued because they didn't catch on. (check them out on google)
It would be great if such devices were more popular.
I wanted to ask if you knew any way of turning my 16:9, 17'' screen into a ultra-wide screen. It seems like no-one is interested in such a thing and there just isn't much info on the web.
For example, I was hoping there would be a way of adding black bars to the top and bottom of my screen to make it ultra-wide.
I find that when I have two chrome windows open, I always use the horizontal scroller, which means I'm in need of more real estate. A great solution for me would be to make all items on my computer smaller but at least for windows 7 100% seems to be the smallest and you can only make items bigger.
Even if I could somehow add black-bars. Windows is always the same size in any resolution and screen size. (For example, the taskbar height is always the same no matter what device you're using, and of course the width is different depending on the size of your screen, if you know what I mean). I was wondering if there was a way to make windows smaller in scale, in which case there would be no need for me to make my screen wider.
I wouldn't mind if everything was smaller.
I'm sorry I'm not very knowledgeable in this aspect of technology. I hope you understand what I'm talking about.
Another idea that came to mind was from the fact that I had actually seen windows 7 scaled down in size. For example, I'm not sure about the specifics of how it's done but I have seen on youtube that people have run windows 7 on smartphones (modding and hacking, which I want to avoid). If only I could make everything on my screen smaller like that and increase my virtual real estate...
Hope someone more knowledgeable can provide some insight. Thanks!!!
