The Dell monitor connected to your computer contains a series of menu screens that let you change options such as the brightness, image position and colour settings. If you want to protect the current settings, or prevent an option from changing if someone accidentally taps the wrong button, the monitor includes an extra lock feature. When you are ready to change any options, unlocking the monitor's menu is only a matter of tapping the appropriate button combination.
