With many of us, the free hand is the least dexterious and controllable one; we evidently are not as fortunate as you to be coordinated in both hands or equally dexterious in both. I know that I tend to favor my right hand over my left which results in anever so slight disruption in my work flow when I have to undertake an operation that calls for use of the other hand. I find that this is less true when it comes to turniong my head from one monitor to another. -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]On Behalf Of Jon and Amy Harris Sent: Sunday, June 09, 2002 5:23 PM To: email@example.com Subject: RE: Two-Monitor advantage?

Shift-tab is *much* more trouble than slithering > over to the other monitor. What about your other hand? For me, one hand stays on my keyboard for shift-tab, Ctrl-Z (undo), copy/paste, etc. while the other is free for the mouse. - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
