How to Move the Screen on a Laptop

Manufacturers design laptops for mobility and flexibility. The same design standards apply to the liquid crystal display (LCD) screen. Most laptop screens have more width than height, but a user may have a greater need for a higher screen. For example, if a user is looking at a spreadsheet, she can view more data if screen has a "taller" orientation. If you use the Windows 7 operating system with Intel graphics, you might be able to move the screen on your laptop.
