PowToon!



Not really sure how to describe this.  Maybe take a whiteboard, some cartoons and mash it with PowerPoint.  PowToons is giving away a free teacher and student account for one year.  

I signed up after watching their demo video on the PowToon site. Take a look and see for yourself.

What happened to my screen? It looks too squished.

Does your screen look a bit squished?  Does it look like a square postage stamp?

Follow these steps to restore it back to the fullest aspect ratio you can.

  • Right click on a blank spot on the screen.
  • Select Graphic Properties
  • Choose Display
  • Resolution - change to 1920X1080
  • Click Apply and OK.

Your screen should now be maximized!

Note: I put my screen resolution as high as it would go.  Your laptop may have this exact same setting.  My recommendation is adjusting the settings to the max!
