    How do I get rid of a oblong black box on screen?
    An 7 inch black box has shown up on my screen. I don't know how or why it's there, but I do NOT want it there. It mirrors my typing and does other things.

    I want to get rid of it. How?

    a plus sign and F and a plus sign and 5? Is that what you're suggesting, or just F5?
