My screen has moved to one side. I can't get to minimize or close. How do I fix that?

I think I touched some key or keys.

    Reboot in safe mode and back to normal mode looks like monitor or graphic driver issue.

SOURCE: the touch screen of my lg chocolate vx8500g is not working

Your phone can be "REPAIRED" by LG if it is within the first 12 months of purchase. After that, from the manufacturer, your on your own. I have a phone a friend gave me to switch over to. My contacts are all lost. :(

SOURCE: touch screen & key board with stick does not respond

try aligning the screen...
settings > screen > general > Align Screen

If that doesn't work try hard reset... i.e.
press the two soft keys and the reset button using stylus...

If its still not working do soft reset:
settings > system > Clear storage
but remember to take back up of phone before doing this..as it will erase all your data...

and do tell me if it worked or not...

SOURCE: inspiron 1300 screen border 1 inch

Have you tried adjusting the screen resolution? If you are running windows, try right-clicking on the desktop, then going to properties>settings>screen resolution. Set it to maximum available (I think it's 1024x768 on your inspiron). This should sort it out.

Good luck,
Raf

Dell inspiron right hand margin cut off


It is more likely that the window got moved to a point where the x, restore, and minimize buttons don't show than it is that a portion of the whole desktop is cut off. Right-click on the icon that represents this window in the task bar, and click maximize. If that's not an option, choose move, and then use the down and or left arrow keys to reposition the window where you can see the minimize, restore, and x buttons, and then hit enter on the keyboard.

How do i close my browser window


You can close your browser window by clicking on the red "x" in the top right hand side corner of your screen. The red "x" means "close". The "square" in the center next to the "x" means make "bigger". The - key next to the square in the upper righ hand side corner of your screen means "minimize". "Minimize" means bring the window to the bottom of the screen. It's like tucking it away or hiding it. If your window is full size and you click the minimize button, it will make the screen a smaller square in the center of your monitor. If you click it again, it hides the window at the bottom of your screen. You can see which windows re open by reading the labels at the bottom of your screen. To bring a screen back up to regular size when its minimized on the bottom - just click on it with your mouse.

When i turned on the leapfrog and asked me to log in my name it doesn't let me go in when i press it with the leapfrog pen


the screen needs to be re-calibrated. Do this: while powering on the Leapster, hold down the ? key. If it's been worn off, it's the round key on the left hand side above the t-arrow keys and it's the middle button. A new screen will come up that lists Base Info Cart 1 Info, Cart 2 Info, Cart 3 Info. In the right hand corner is a "A" that you can touch with pen beside it, it says "Touch Calib" Touch on that.It will say starting...then in the upper left hand corner there is a +. touch it with pen. it will move to bottom left hand corner. Touch it with pen. It will move to right bottom corner. touch with pen. It will move to upper right hand corner. Touch with pen. It will move to the center of the screen. Touch with pen. Repeat until you come back to the Base Info screen. You're DONE! Power off and on again and you should be all set! Good luck!!

My toshiba laptop cursor doesnot move when i touch the tray pad


Hi!

I had the same problem after my fat cat sat on my keyboard. This is how I fixed it. At the top of the keyboard there is a F9 key. If you look closely at this key, it also has two pictures of the mouse pad. This key is a toggle that turns the mouse pad on and off. Down near the lower left corner of the keyboard is a key marked FN. Hold down the FN key and press the F9 key. That will turn the mouse pad back on.

Touch pad failed.


Look along the top of the keyboard for an "f key" that shows a "touch pad" icon, IF you see it, press the "function key" (along the bottom of the keyboard) PLUS at the same time the "f key" (that you found along the top) and that should "toggle" the touch pad back on....
Also, IF you plug in a USB mouse that will allow you to move the cursor around--but the USB mouse doesn't fix your touch pad problem.
Hope this helps.

Yes, there is a way to shut down without touchpad. Look to see if you have a key on bottom left corner of keypad that looks like a little MS Windows icon (kinda like a 4-piece "crooked flag"). If you do, you are in luck. Press that key ONCE and let go and the start menu will "expand" and show you programs, settings and SHUT DOWN. Now just hit the UP arrow key (on bottom right side of keyboard) and the menu moves up one notch, to SHUT DOWN. No press ENTER and the shut down menu appears Move the arrow key again, until it says "SHUT DOWN and press ENTER again. That is it.

If you have no windows key (many laptops don't) then try pressing ALT and F keys. Sometimes this works. If it does raise the menu, then 5the instructions are the same thereafter (arrows and enter).

Another way to shut down is press CTR ALT and DEL (DELETE) together, all three keys simultaneously (but only ONE time). Then wait a second. This brings up a process window that has tabs for shut down (arrows and enter will work there too).

Now, when you restart, look for an icon in bottom right hand corner for "synaptics touch pad". or some other brand touch pad. There you can change your touchpad settings back to "tapping" for mouse clicking. You can also allow "click and drag" but I think that is dangerous, since you can accidentally "bury" files and folders.

Hit the solved/Fix Ya key on the way out. :)

Screen minimizes when using the touch pad


If you touch the top right corner of the touchpad, it restores down the window you are currently in. The bottom right corner of the touchpad minimizes the window you are currently in. The bottom left corner of the touch pad brings up the start menu.
