Quickly Turn Off Monitor, Works on both Laptop and Desktop [Tips]

0

Sometimes I just want to turn off my monitor but would still keep my PC running, perhaps it’s downloading stuff or playing music whatever it’s doing I don’t really need to “monitor” what’s going on. And would like to focus on other works that I don’t need a computer.

I guess for desktop is not a problem, just need to figure out where the physical button and all you need to do is the power it off. (assuming that you have a physical button, but recently more and more monitors comes with fancy controls that they made it very hard to use)

For laptops, things can be tricky. As of mine laptop, I have a Fn+F6 (functional key) that can enable me to turn it off the monitor, but for some other laptops like some Toshiba laptops, I just can’t find this button. So, in this case, how can I turn the monitor off?

Sure you can close the lid and set it not to go sleep, but what if I just want to keep the monitor the way it is. Well, there is a tool you can use.

It’s called “Monitor Off
