A Good Transition Period
Sometimes it takes the human brain a while to relearn muscle memory and get used to a new computer setup. Which is why we would suggest breaking yourself into things slowly as not to get overwhelmed and dislike a new set up? If you are going to add a system with four monitors, it might be wise to get used to two at first, then three, and then four.

It’s a good idea to ease yourself into the transition.
