Work from home
Many of us are now working from home in self-quarantine to prevent the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. Have you been wondering how to set up a videoconference? Decide on a standing desk? Exercise in order to keep healthy? Stay sane? We’ve got your back. Here at The Verge, we offer advice and step-by-step how-tos on how best to do your job from your home office, bedroom, or living room. We help you choose the right laptop, headphones, and desk, and find the right apps for keeping in touch via video, chat, and email. We offer specific directions for apps like Zoom and Slack, from how to get started to finding hidden but useful features. We also include some ways to take a mental health break — for example, how to use Netflix Party to stream movies with your friends.
