Arrange the display so that the top of the screen is slightly below eye level when you’re
sitting at the keyboard. The best distance from your eyes to the screen is up to you,
although most people seem to prefer 18 to 28 inches (45 to 70 cm).
Position the display to minimize glare and reflections on the screen from overhead
lights and nearby windows. If possible, use a tiltable display stand. The stand lets you
set the display at the best angle for viewing, helping to reduce or eliminate glare from
lighting sources you can’t move.
