Utilising the new Samsung Easy Setting Box software is a great way of improving how you interact with your devices and thus increasing productivity. This software can help you to better utilize the space (or ‘screen real-estate’) of your Samsung monitor meaning that you may not need a secondary monitor. If you do need to use multiple monitors, the Easy Setting Box software is compatible with up to 4 Samsung monitors. Samsung Easy Setting Box software is exclusive to selected Samsung Monitors including the popular 31.5" Quantum Dot 4K monitor, 34" WQHD Ultrawide 100Hz monitor, 49" DFHD Super Ultrawide HDR monitor and many more. A full compatibility list can be found HERE on Samsung’s website

How does it work?


Samsung Easy Setting Box works similarly to Windows 10’s integrated ‘window snapping’ feature though adds additional functionality. Along with ‘window snapping’, Easy Setting Box also features a “picture-in-picture" mode allowing you to connect and interact with multiple connected devices all on the one monitor. Easy Setting Box provides 14 different layout presets (ranging from 2 – 6 grids vertically or horizontally) to suit any of your needs and can be changed at any time using the associated software. Once a preset has been selected, the newly created windows/partitions can have their size manually changed to suit any of your needs. 

 

 

Where do I get it?


If you have a Samsung monitor compatible with Easy Setting Box, the associated software can be downloaded from the monitor’s product page on Samsung’s website here: https://www.samsung.com/au/monitors/all-monitors. Once Easy Setting Box has been installed, execute the shortcut that has been placed on your desktop and you will be presented with this.
