Is there any filter or privacy filter I could add to my laptop that would keep dust and marks off of it. I often have to keep cleaning my screen, and wondered if there is some way or hack around this?
3You can buy one: just do an internet search for laptop screen protector. However, you then have the problem of keeping that clean of dust and marks.– Weather VaneSep 26, 2019 at 18:26
What kind of marks are on your screen? Is it a touch-sensitive screen (where you could use as clean stylus rather than a yukky finger, say)?– StanSep 28, 2019 at 20:10
If it's just dust, canned compressed air can remove all of it in a couple of seconds. Won't help against fingerprints etc., though.– HeadcrabOct 2, 2019 at 7:42
There must be screen protectors available on the internet or in computer shops.
However, the vast majority of people just use a soft piece of cotton cloth to remove the dust. It is cheap, simple, ecologic, fast...
You do not even need a "special" piece of cloth. You can use a perfectly fine wearable t-shirt (or anything else), clean the screen, wash the t-shirt.
Of course, I assume there is only plain dust on the screen. If the screen gets oils, glues, pieces of food etc., then the discussion changes completely. In this case, even a dedicated additional screen filter will not prevent the grease and stuff go between the screen and the frame (that is, around the screen).
Wouldn't a microfibre sheet be better than cotton? The synthetic seems to "grab" and "hold" (technical terms) grease and oil smudges.– StanSep 28, 2019 at 20:15
I do not have much experience with microfiber. I know for sure that cotton cannot scratch the screen by itself. If I am not wrong, the microfiber tends to fill quickly with dirt / grease, and after that the results are seriously disappointing. Washing the microfiber will not turn it to the like-new state.– virolinoSep 30, 2019 at 5:36
