How do I close tabs on this phone


Dear Nancy,
  • Bring the Tabs to be closed on the screen,
  • Look on the upper left side, you will see the number of tabs opened inside a square.
  • With your index finger Tap on that little square with the number(s) inside it.
  • All of the opened tabs will move down leaving a black margin on the top of the screen.
  • You will see an X at in the the Right.
  • Keep on tapping on the X until you close all of the Tabs.
  • Notice that the number inside the square will be counting down every time you close a Tab.
  • After the last tab is closed, you will see a + sign inside a square on the Left of the screen.
  • You must Tap on that + square to open a new tab.
  • You can also message me directly in the Comments Box if you need more help.
Good Luck

TRYING TO CONNECT TWO MONITORS FOR EXTENDING USE


1) You have to have a graphics card with two monitor ports.

You Cannot use one port on a graphics card, and the VGA, or DVI port on the motherboard of the computer.
BIOS will only let you use the graphics card, or the Integrated Graphics.

2) Using a 'splitter' cable results in very bad graphics on two monitors, or no graphics at all.

3) With a graphics card installed that has two monitor ports on it, connect the monitors to the graphics card.

[ The graphics card can have a VGA port, and a DVI port. Or the graphics card can have two DVI ports.

VGA = Video Graphics Array
Photo of a VGA port,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SVGA_port.jpg

Photo of a VGA cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Vga-cable.jpg

DVI = Digital Visual Interface

Information about DVI showing a DVI cable, and connector examples for the DVI port on a graphics card,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface ]


4) Turn the two monitors on once they are connected to the graphics card.
Turn on the computer.

5) Windows loaded, right-click on an empty area of the desktop screen.

6) In the list go to the bottom, and click on Properties

7) Click on the Settings tab.

8) You will see two monitor icons.
One icon has a square with a 1 in it.
The other icon has a square with a 2 in it.

The 1 monitor icon is used to represent your Primary monitor.
The one you have been using.
As you can see the 1 monitor icon is sitting to the Left.
This is how your Primary monitor should be sitting on your computer desk.

The 2 monitor icon is used to represent your Secondary monitor.
The one you are going to add.
As you can see the 2 monitor icon is sitting to the Right.
This is how your Secondary monitor should be sitting on your computer desk.

Left-click on the 2 monitor icon.
Go below in the Display Properties window, and view where it states -

Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor

There is an empty square to the left of it.
Left-click in the empty square.

Now go below to the Right, and click on - Apply
Finally go below to the Left, and click on - OK

Your desktop screen will now be on your Secondary monitor.

Whatever is on your Primary monitor, has to be drug over to the Secondary monitor, when you are on the internet, or a program. (Such as a game)

Go to the blue frame on the Left side of the Windows screen.
When your cursor turns into a double-headed arrow STOP.

You'll find it's a little tricky your first time, keeping your cursor into the position where it turns into a double-headed arrow.
With the cursor in a double-headed arrow, press the left mouse button down, hold it down.
Drag the monitor screen to the Left.

Keep dragging until the window on your Primary monitor is on your Secondary monitor.
It's helpful you'll find to have two of the same size monitors.

I have found occasion where when using the internet on two monitors, that I had to Restore Down the screen, THEN drag it over to the Secondary monitor screen.

(Icons at the top right of the monitor screen.
Minimize ( - ), .......Restore Down/Maximize, ...........Red X

Then I Maximized the screen

Try to raise the resolution on the computer itself.

Right click on an empty section of the desktop.

Click properties then setting on the box that appeared.

move the slider to 1024x768 click APPLY and then OK.

You may also have to tell your games to use a higher resolution also. Most Games have a VIDEO option where you can do this.

Go to the point where you have a stable picture even if it is huge. Right click on an empty space on the desktop and scroll down to properties. Click on settings and increase the resolution a little at a time hitting apply and checking the display as you go. Keep hitting ok to the display settings if you like them. Find the resolution and display size that suites you.

Dual monitors show identical instead of independent display info. Any suggestions?


Right click any empty space on the desk top to bring up display properties. Select the "Settings" tab. Click on the "Advance" button. Select the monitor tab. You should see an icon representing each monitor. You have to click on one icon or the other to see a check box to allow you extend your desktop from one monitor to the other.
