1.1.4 Tips on using your computer safely and comfortably

When you get a new computer, take time to read the manuals to find out how to adjust it. In many cases a few simple adjustments can make using a computer a lot easier and much more comfortable.

For example:

  • How do you change the brightness of the screen?

  • How do you adjust the keyboard so that it either slopes up or lies flat?

  • How do you adjust the angle of the monitor?

The answers are likely to be in the manuals that come with the computer.
