Hi,

'Up' here just adds a little emphasis to the idea that the screen is raised in a prominent position.

'To put your foot in your mouth' would be an embarassing and foolish thing to do. As an idiom, it means 'To say something really foolish and embarrassing'.

Best wishes, Clive

So the suggestion is when making such a mistake, just briefly point it out and then move on; do not try to explain why you made such an error because such an explanation is foolish. Right?
