Extending your desktop onto another computer within your home network can enable you to increase your productivity by providing you with more "real estate" from which to work. This can allow you to perform multiple full screen functions at the same time, such as navigating web pages while typing in a word processor. This requires the use of freeware to connect the two computers across the network. The set-up itself should take less than 30 minutes.
