John,
Set it up to your preference .....  Adjust your screen to whatever size you feel comfortable ... there is no set rules.  
I used 3 monitors and I place the radio on the left monitor, since my peripheral views is closer to that area; using around 2 third of the screen for that and the rest to for items I frequently use. Another monitor for the software and finally the third monitor for logging etc...

Ok, well I got it now working, but I need to change the screen resolution on the monitoe screen which has my cctv cams on it. There is nothing in the menu system of that monitor to adjust this. I may have to live with it.

John,
You can adjust the size of your monitors, by minimizing the GUI on the upper right corner  next to the X to close that page.  If the page takes the entire screen, you should see that there are 2 square little boxes one on top of the other.  Click on it and the GUI should be half the size of the previous display. Then you could take the edge and stretch it to a size that you like.  And you could do the same for the bottom on that page.
That is how I manage to place so many items on one monitor.  
If you like we can do it over the phone and we can get it going to meet your needs.   
I will be home this afternoon around 1PM EST ... I'm in Florida...
