Specs: Windows 7
how do I move my screen to the left? It has moved to the right. I can get a full screen by hitting F11button but when I hit it again and the screen gets small it is still to the right and has space at the bottom of the screen. It does not cover the full screen.

✔ Best Answer
Do you mean any screen or just your browser screen?

Have you tried setting the double squares at the top right next to the X to show a single square then moving the screen at the edges using the mouse? You can shift the whole thing by moving the top bar. See this:

If this is a PC the other possibility is that there are some buttons on the monitor that have been altered.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If you're asking about a browser window, just click in a blank area at the top, hold the mouse button, then drag the window to where you want it.

It sounds like the problem is with your browser window, not
with the screen.

In addition to being moved to the right, is it also moved up,
so that you can't put the mouse pointer on the title bar?

To move a window using the keyboard when you can't grab
the title bar with the mouse:

Select the window you want to move either by clicking on
any part of it or by cycling through the open windows with
the Alt and Tab keys. Hold down Alt and hit Tab.

Hold the Alt key and hit the space bar to pop down a menu.
This is the same menu that pops down if you click the icon in
the top-left corner of the window.

One of the selections on the menu is Move, with the M underlined.
Hit the M key on the keyboard to select Move mode.

Now you can move the window around with the keyboard arrow
keys. When it is positioned where you want it, hit the Enter key.

When the title bar is reachable with the mouse, you can make
fine adjustments in the window position. Windows 7 wants to put
window edges at the edge of the screen, though, so you may need
to wrestle with the operating system to get exactly what you want.

If this is the entire screen that needs moved left and down, those functions are usually found on the monitor itself. Usually near, the power button on the monitor their is a"menu" button or similar, if you open it you should get a variety of adjustment for the monitor/screen. Find the one for adjusting left right, and up and down.

To err is human but to really screw things up, you need a computer!
