7 tips to make the best use of your laptop

Be it work or at home, you’re bound to find a laptop on everyone’s desk these days. While it’s become a common sight, do we really know everything about what a laptop offers? We’ve compiled a list for you so that you can use your laptop in the best possible way.

7 tips to make the best use of your laptop

Update your laptop: Update all of your programmes, operating systems, and virus protection software. Consider these upgrades as ongoing tune-ups as opposed to disruptions.

External mouse and keyboard: A wireless keyboard and mouse go a long way in easing the way one uses their laptops. A full-sized keyboard, for instance, is considerably simpler to use than the laptop’s little keyboard if you frequently work with spreadsheets and numbers.

Upgrade your screen: Although laptops are made to be portable, make sure the screen on your laptop is big enough for your purposes. You might have to strain to view text and objects on a smaller screen. You can also increase the font size if you find it too difficult to read the text.

Using a flat surface: Most laptops include air vents on the sides or at the bottom. Your laptop will overheat if you leave it on an uneven surface such as a pillow or bed for an extended time. The best thing to do is to keep the laptop on a flat surface.

Clean the vents: Speaking of vents, they tend to accumulate dust over time. Obstructed vents will limit the dissipation of heat, which will result in your laptop heating up. It’s a good habit to regularly clean these vents.

Cooling pad: For better temperature management, you can also use a cooling pad for your laptop. It will not only keep your laptop in a better position, but also cool the underneath of your laptop.

Using an external monitor:This doesn’t apply to those who have a laptop with a decent sized screen. But for others, investing in an external monitor will make their work easier. You won’t have to strain your eyes, and your laptop’s screen can double up as a secondary screen for Twitter or e-mail.
