Give me back my window

Last week we talked about what to do if your computer screen (monitor) switches itself off.

But if that doesn’t work and you have to log an Assyst, how do you access the work that is displaying on the blacked-out screen?

  1. Press Windows/Start key + left arrow key.
  2. Repeat until the window appears on your visible monitor.

If the wrong window appears:

  1. press Windows/Start key + tab key
    – all your open windows will display as a cascade across your screen
  2. tap the tab key repeatedly, while holding down the Windows/Start key
  3. when the window you wish to access is visible in the cascade of windows, click that window with your mouse (while still holding down the Windows/Start key) – this makes that window the active window
  4. now press Windows/Start key + left arrow key
  5. repeat until the window appears on your visible monitor.

Congratulations: you have just done something very tricky.

Do you need to effectively Delegate or Influence?

By attending the Delegating and Influencing Strategies course on Thursday 21 June, 9.00am-4.30pm, you will have the opportunity to increase your knowledge and gain new skills to effectively delegate and convincingly influence others.

Spaces are still available, register now to avoid missing out.

Delegation is a critical skill for leaders in today’s environment. Fewer resources, changing motivations, and complex business goals are just a few of the challenges leaders face as they attempt to meet ever-increasing workplace demands.

In this programme, participants learn the skills they need to address these challenges, gain the commitment of team members, develop individual skills and abilities, and enhance the overall capability and capacity of their teams and, ultimately, UC.

Computer Screen Blackout Problem?

Do you have trouble with a computer screen (monitor) switching itself off from time to time?

I went through a phase recently where one of my two computer monitors would refuse to wake up from sleep mode, or just apparently switch itself off. One moment I’m working with two monitors, then suddenly one goes black – and I can no longer see what’s on that monitor!

Here’s a solution:
Reach behind the monitor and switch it off. Wait a minute or two, then switch it back on. This usually resolves the problem and saves  you needing to log an ‘Assyst’ ticket with IT.
