One way that you might be able to solve you problem is just by increasing the sensitivity of the mouse so that you don't have to try to hard to make it drag. You can change this in the control panel under keyboard and mouse preferences.

Excel table link in word


Excel and Word are two parts of the Microsoft Office Suite that have become standards tools for spreadsheets and word processing.
Among their features are the ability to easily exchange information.
For example, you can easily copy a cell or part of a spreadsheet from an Excel and paste it into a Word document, which preserves all the formatting.
This method requires opening up both programs at the same time.
To avoid this, you can insert an Excel file from within Word itself.

Choose the "Insert" tab inside Microsoft Word to display the Object dialog box.
Click the "Create from File" tab and Browse to display the Browse dialog box.
Navigate to the Excel file that you need and double-click to load its name into the File Name box of the Object dialog box.

Click a checkmark into the "Link to File" box if you want the table that you insert to be automatically updated anytime the original file is changed.
Otherwise, leave it blank if you don't want the inserted information to be affected by the original file.

Click "OK" to insert the Excel file as a frame into the document.
Note how only filled cells from the first table (worksheet) of the file are inserted.
Blank cells are not inserted. You can resize the frame by clicking it and dragging the handles that appear.
You can also click it and drag it to a different line within the document.

    So I hooked this moniter up to my hp and all I get is two blinking lights


    One monitor serves as the primary monitor, and this monitor displays the Logon dialog box when you start your computer. In addition, most programs will display windows on the primary monitor when you initially open them. You can select different screen resolutions and different color quality settings for each monitor. Multiple monitors can be connected to individual video adapters or to a single video adapter that supports multiple outputs. To configure the arrangement of multiple monitors:
    1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
    2. Click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.
    3. On the Settings tab, click Identify to display a large number on each of your monitors. This shows which monitor corresponds with each icon.
    4. Click the monitor icons and drag them to positions that represent how you want to move items from one monitor to another, and then click OK or Apply to view changes.
    NOTE: The icon positions determine how you move items from one monitor to another. For example, if you are using two monitors and you want to move items from one monitor to the other by dragging left and right, place the icons side by side. To move items between monitors by dragging up and down, place the icons one above the other. The icon positions do not have to correspond to the physical positions of the monitors. You can place the icons one above the other even though your monitors are side by side.
    Change Primary Monitor
    1. On the Settings tab of the Display Properties dialog box, click the monitor icon that represents the monitor you want to designate as the primary monitor.
    2. Click to select the Use this device as the primary monitor check box. Note that this check box is unavailable when you select the monitor icon that is currently set as your primary monitor.
    View Same Desktop in Multiple Monitors
    1. On the Settings tab of the Display Properties dialog box, click the monitor icon that represents the monitor you want to use in addition to your primary monitor.
    2. Click to select the Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor check box. After you enable this feature, you can drag items across your screen onto alternate monitors. Or, you can resize a window to stretch it across more than one monitor.
    Move Items Between Monitors
    1. On the Settings tab of the Display Properties dialog box, click Identify to display a large number on each of your monitors. This shows which monitor corresponds with each icon.
    2. Click the monitor icons and drag them to positions that represent how you want to move items from one monitor to another, and then click OK or Apply.
    3. Drag an item on your desktop across your screen until it appears on the alternate monitor. Or, you can resize a window to stretch it across more than one monitor.
    Using DualviewOn many portable computers and some desktop computers (those with two video ports on one video card), you can expand your display to a second monitor by using Dualview. Dualview is very similar to the multiple monitor feature, with the exception that you cannot select the primary display. On a portable computer, the primary monitor is always the LCD display screen. On a desktop computer, it is the monitor that is attached to the first video out port. Once you attach the second monitor and turn on your computer, use the Display tool in Control Panel to configure your settings, just as you do with multiple monitors. You can use Dualview with docked or undocked portable computers.

    Can't move the dialog box with the mouse using the touch pad can't move an open window or grab the end of the window to resize the window


    there are two ways to do that using the touch pad. first is by tapping it twice while the mouse pointer is pointed at the ends or at the dialog box and then dragging it to anywhere you want. second way is to use the left clicker of your touch pad by pressing and holding it while the pointer is pointed at the dialog box and then use the touch pad to drag it to anywhere you want.... i hope this helps...

    Dialog box is too big for screen.


    Try changing the scanning resolution before running the scanner. There's usually a utility program with every scanner you purchase that allows you to do that.
    Unless you're a professional photographer who needs to blow up a standard size picture to a poster or bill board size, you may only need 100-200 dpi resolution.
    This will create smaller files that may overflow your screen size, but are manageable.
    Good luck!
