Customer Question
When I accidentally hit...

When I accidentally hit the bottom of my board and cause the screen to get off center, how can I correct it without turning off and restarting my computer?

Technician's Assistant: What kind of Apple device do you have? What Operating System (OS) are you running?

A laptop but I don't know what type of OS

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Apple device? What have you tried so far?

A long time. I can fix the problem by fiddling with two fingers on the control key but it's just hit or miss. I know there must be some way to touch it to correct it.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
