How to Lower an Office Chair

If you spend most of your day sitting at a desk then you know that the more comfortable you are, the more productive you will be. There are a variety of office chair brands available to choose from so the most important thing you need to do is first find an office chair that fits you best. Once you find the office chair that suits you, make sure you know how to adjust the office chair to allow for even more support. Almost all office chairs come equipped with a height adjustment.

Step 1

Locate the lever or button on the underside of the office chair and lift upward or press.

Step 2

Raise the chair's gas lift to its full height by raising your body slightly, taking your weight off the chair.

Step 3

Use the height control lever or button to lower yourself gradually until you are at the appropriate height.

Step 4

Stand in front of the office chair and rotate the seat clockwise or counterclockwise if you have an older style office chair that does not have a height adjustment lever or button.
