    It was early, and I thought maybe I was still dreaming...when I tried to read a Hub, this Ad came rolling across the screen and covered my entire view!  It finally stopped going past my view after a couple of minutes, but it was very distracting!!!  Course it keeps the reader on the page longer waiting for the Ad to stop.

      Hi mary615,

      Yikes, rolling ads are actually against our advertising policy. If you see it happen again, please send a screenshot to the HP Team and we'll ask that advertiser to turn them off. Sorry about that!

        How do you take a screen shot? After it rolls in, it sits on the side on your pic. long enough that you could probably do that. Ive seen it at least twice.

          Hi Beth37,

          If you're on a Mac computer, press these keys at the same time: ctrl shift 3

          If you're on a PC computer, you can press the Print Screen key, which will copy an image of your screen to your clipboard. You will still have to paste it into Paint or other image software and save it.

              Hello Beth37,

              Which Windows OS are you using? (Windows 7, 8, XP, etc.)

              Paint is typically found in the Start menu or within Accessories.

        Thanks for reply.  I will take a screen shot if I see the ad again.  Glad it is not HP's policy.
