Using Multiple Displays

When one screen just isn’t enough to hold all the stuff you’re doing with your Mac, it’s time to add more. Your Mac can support multiple displays that can be used side-by-side or for mirroring—displaying the same image on more than one screen, for easier viewing by everyone. You’ll find that working with multiple displays increases your efficiency tremendously.
