My toshiba equium has flipped the desktop page


Open Control panel, open Display. Display Properties will open on your desk top. Click the Desktop tab. Set position for stretch.
If this is not what you want than find a clear spot down at the task bar. Right click once a pop up window will open, pick your flavor. Still not what you want? Explain in more detail what you want.
Enjoy..
