Computer Question?

I have a Toshiba notebook and would like to use it on our deck but there is just too much reflection on the screen to really see it well... is there a setting or something I could do to use the notebook outside?

Re: Computer Question?

I have the same problem. I have to get into a shady spot and make sure that whats behind me (which will be reflected on the screen) is dark. Shrubs are good.

My old laptop had the matte screen and I couldnt see the screen in daylight either.

A white background on the screen helps to read text. I cant see the windows desktop to save my life no matter how I tilt the screen, but I can read the forum.
