Three: One for messaging and reference (Outlook, Slack, a Firefox window, etc). Once for main code (C# mainly). One for related code (MSSQL), other reference, and notes (Notepad++).

Everything else is minimized or not even running. Don't need it on the screen, it's gone.

This is the best set up imo. I'm back down to two unfortunately and it's already frustrating.

My dream setup is three screens. Unfortunately, student budget hahaha.
