  In order to use Monitor Test in a web browser, we will have to use the Monitor Test Smart-TV & Tablet web tool, since other tools require Flash.


  If you are using Windows, it is recommended to download the executable file, as it offers a variety of additional features.  If we stay in the browser, we will be limited to a few colors and gradients.


  We will find the list at the top.  We will scroll to view the browser or we can move the mouse to the top edge of the executable window.  Windows Tools also has a handy info box that will help guide us through the steps.


  It is possible to move the box, turn it on or off thanks to the menu.  We also find a button that allows us to switch to full screen mode.  Next, we will see a summary of all the tests that we can perform with this useful and interesting Windows tool.
