What computer are you using?

On a Windows pc use the key combination ALT+TAB to switch between active windows

Then either:

Double click the Title bar of the window which is partly off-screen

Or - press the F11 key

Or - Click and Drag the title bar to the top of the screen then release the mouse button

One of these methods should toggle between full screen and where it is now

Or - Hover your mouse over a corner or edge of the troublesome window until the cursor becomes a double ended arrow - Then click and drag to re-size the window - Then click and drag the title bar to get the full window back in view

    Windows sleep mode problems

    Sleep mode on a Windows 7 PC saves power without you having to turn your computer off and without losing any work. This option cuts the power to your monitor, powers down the hard drive and pauses all functions until you awaken the computer from hibernation. Whether you have a laptop, desktop or workstation, putting your computer into sleep mode will lower your electric bill and save money! Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of your desktop. In the lower right corner of the Start menu, next to the "Shut Down" button, is a button labeled with a small, right-pointing arrow. Mouse over the arrow. The Shut Down menu appears. Point at "Sleep" and click on this option. Your Windows 7 computer goes into sleep mode. Wake your computer from sleep mode by jiggling the mouse. There may be a delay of a few seconds before your hardware powers on. All of your open programs are still open and your work is intact, just as you left it before the computer entered sleep mode. Configure your Windows 7 PC to go into sleep mode automatically when it is not used for a certain amount of time. Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click "System and Security." Click "Power Options." A menu opens. Click on "Choose when the computer sleeps" and select the number of minutes of inactivity. You can also set a separate time interval to put your monitor into sleep mode. If you set both to 10 minutes, then your PC and monitor will automatically go into sleep mode after 10 minutes of inactivity

    In windows 7, I can't figure out how to turn "tap to click" off. There is no tapping tab. Can you tell me how to perform this task?

    Step 1: To turn off the hover option on your Windows 7 laptop, click your Start button (bottom left of your screen), then type main.cpl in the search box and click Enter on your keyboard. You can also go to your Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, then choose Mouse beneath Devices and Printers.
    Step 2: When the Mouse Properties box opens for your trackpad, choose the Device Settings tab to the far right, then click the Settings button below Devices.
    Step 3: Double-click the word Tapping (or click the plus sign in front of Tapping once) in the list to the left, then uncheck Enable Tapping. Click OK for both boxes, and you're done. Now you can click when YOU want to click, not when your mouse decides to.

    Screen layout-turn 90 degree to the left

    Believe it or not this is an easy fix.

    Hover your mouse over the double up arrows (Windows 7) and find the TV monitor looking icon. Double click that and your intell graphics driver properties will appear. There should be a tab that says 'Screen' or "orientation".

    Anyway, in that tab you'll see several choices for your screen to turn. Memory failing me, I think if you hold the 'control' key and then tap the 'up' arrow it will orientate your screen back.

    Hope that helped...
