How to Adjust Display Height on an iMac

Apple's iMac computers are all-in-one systems. From the exterior, the computer is largely the display. Apple's iMacs offer minimal latitude to adjust the display height. An iMac can be tilted, but the adjustment makes a slight impact on screen height. If you must raise or lower an iMac screen, it may be simpler to adjust the workspace instead. Apple also sells a kit to mount an iMac on a third-party monitor stand.

  1. 1

    Adjust the angle of your iMac's display. An iMac display will tilt on a fulcrum. By adjusting the angle, you can slightly adjust the screen height.

  2. 2

    Place the iMac on a multi-level desk. If you adjust the height of the surface your iMac rests upon, you will effectively adjust the display height. Look for a desk with a central platform, which can be raised and lowered independent of the work surface.

  3. 3

    Purchase and install Apple's Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) mount. The VESA mount will allow you to attach your iMac to a standard display mount, offering significant height-adjustment potential.

Tips and warnings

  • The Apple VESA mount is only available for 24- and 27-inch iMacs.
