    Cursor problem,Automatic deleting problem


    it sounds like your mouse is highlighting your text automatically. try disabling the trackpad and using a wireless mouse, if that solves your problem then you can adjust the trackpad settings to shut off automatically while you're typing.

    I'm using lenovo g450 and i need to use printscreen but when i press PrntScrn I Don't know if it's ok or it's not working but nothing happens.. but if it's working i don't know where the file stored in...


    Hi,

    If you press PRNTSCRN, nothing really happens. You need to paste it in paint in order to see the image. So you have to open Paint (located in Start/Programs/Accessories) and paste (CTRL+V) directly.

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks!

    Hi i want to widen my screen


    The Resolution can be changed in Windows XP by minimizing all applications, right clicking on the desktop, selecting Properties. In the Display Settings window go to the Settings tab. Here you can change the resolution. I think you are wanting to use a widescreen setup so going for a resolution of 1280x800 should fill your screen. Play around with the available settings to resize the screen.

    If you are using MS Vista, you need to minimize all applications to the desktop, right click, select Personalize. In the Personalize Window click on Display Settings down the bottom, modify the resolution as appropriate.

    Alternatively, you may be able to find the function key that did this to your resolution. Above your F1-F12 keys there should be a little picture. If you click on the [fn] key (near the Windows key) as well as one of the F1-F12 keys you can cause different functions to be performed. This may be how the resolution changed initially.

    Good luck
