How To Change Monitor Orientation in Mac OS X

I am primarily a Windows 7 user and prefer usually multiple monitors while at work. However, I also work with a Mac Book Pro. While I usually never used the MBP in a multi-monitor setup, I have started doing it now.

Display Options from System Preferences

One of the problems I have faced with both Windows 7 and Mac OS X in a multi-monitor setup is that the orientation of the monitor is usually left to right by default and this is a pain when you are connecting a laptop to an external monitor and want to move your mouse between monitors.

I had written a post to change dual monitor position for Windows 7 earlier, if you are a Mac OS X user, you can follow the instructions below to do it on a Mac as well.

Step 1: Open Finder and open up the “System Preferences” from under “Applications”

Step 2: Click on the “Display” option under in the System Preferences window. This will pop up the display options window on all the multi-monitor.

Change Monitor Orientation in Mac OS X

Step 3: Now on the main monitor, click on the “Arrangement” tab and you will see the monitors you have attached to the Mac. Using this screen you can drag and drop the monitor as per your orientation.

That’s it. You can now move your mouse across monitors the way you have set the orientations of the monitor.

Once you have done that, edit the shortcut and add -user-agent="Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0;)" to it. Once you have done that, use the shortcut while you are browsing Facebook and the timeline will be disabled. (Find Instructions for creating and editing the Chrome shortcut)

How To Rename Folder in Android

Just like iOS which introduced folders in , too allows users to create folders to store multiple items in it. Adding a folder is pretty easy but Android does not provide an easy option to rename the folder to something more rememberable.

Whenever you create or add a new folder to any Android home screen, the name remains "New folder" which is not very helpful when you add multiple folders to the same screen.

So how do you rename folders in Android? Well, it is actually pretty easy. When you add a "New folder" to a Android screen, open the folder and then long press (press and hold) the folder’s title bar where the name appears (initially "new folder"). When you do that, a dialog box "Rename folder" will appear, allowing you to enter a new name for the folder.

Enter the name of the folder in the dialog box and click on the "OK" button and your folder will be renamed. You can use the same steps to rename the folder to something else as well.

Just make sure to open the folder first so that it’s contents are visible. If you long press on the folder itself, you will be shown an option to remove it and not to change the folder name of the Android folder.
