Cleaning your computer screen

Cleaning your computer screen

If your display screen is dusty or you need to clean it, use only water or a mild glass cleaner that contains no alcohol or ammonia.

Most office supply stores sell cleaning kits specifically designed for this purpose. Be careful not to use any cleaning products that may scratch or mar the display surface, especially if you are cleaning the screens of Apple portable computers and flat-panel monitors.

Steps to follow:

  • Turn off the computer or display. You may need to turn off the computer in order to turn off some Apple displays.
  • Do not spray liquid directly on the screen. Dampen a clean, soft, lint-free cloth or paper with water only, or an appropriate mild glass cleaner.
  • Wipe the screen gently until clean.
