OK guys, I am a 64 year old computer challenged guy. Can I either open two browsers or different web pages on the same monitor or do I need two monitors. If I need two monitors, do I just add an additional graphics card to my computer and, if so, are there any other settings I need to change when I do that? Thanks for any assistance with this (probably simple) question. And, BTW, I did try to search for what I needed on this site but that just led to more confusion on my part!!

Hello johninnm...

In Windows 7 there is a very simple solution. Open the two windows you wish to view, left click on the top border of one of them, and drag it to the left side of the monitor. Then drag the second window to the right side of the screen. When you are dragging the windows, when the mouse cursor touches the edge of the screen, the windows should "snap to" half screen size.

There's also a keyboard shortcut if you have a keyboard key with the Windows logo. Press the Windows key, plus the left or right arrow key to snap the active window to the left or right half of your screen,
