Abstract

Described is a design that allows both a user and a person on the other side of the user's desk, to view a computer display. With the commonly used single display flat-panel, if a user sitting across from another person wishes to show his/her display to that person, they must either rotate the panel or ask the person to come over to their side of the desk, Also, if the user has certain windows open that contain private or confidential information, he/she must close or minimize these windows before showing their display. With this design, the user selects which specific window or information he/she wishes the other side to see, while leaving other confidential or private information viewable only to the user. Finally, with this design, the user can expand their virtual workspace to twice the size when needed, and then reduce when not, which saves desk space.
