ABSTRACT
As large displays become more affordable, researchers are investigating the effects on productivity, and techniques for making the large-display user experience more effective. Recent work has demonstrated significant productivity benefits, but has also identified numerous usability issues that inhibit productivity. Studies show that larger displays enable users to create and manage many windows, as well as to engage in complex multitasking behavior. This article describes various usability issues, including losing track of the cursor, accessing windows and icons at a distance, dealing with bezels in multimonitor displays, window management, and task management. It also presents several novel techniques that address these issues and make users more productive on large-display systems.
