how to rotate the screen on a gateway touch screen desktop


Hi. I am fairly certain you would need to go into the Windows Control Panel. Go to "Display, then "Adjust Screen Resolution." Where it says "Orientation," change "Portrait" to "Landscape." This is generally how you change the screen orientation in Windows for most PC's. I hope this has helped you. Thanks!

sideway screen INSPIRON mini how do I fix it


Changing the screen orientation of your Windows display can make your screen rotate at a 90-degree, 180-degree and 270-degree angle. By default, Windows operating systems do not come with a built-in mechanism to change the screen's orientation. Certain graphics boards, such as Intel, utilize hot keys to change the screen orientation. If the hot keys do not work on your computer, a program can be installed to create shortcuts that change the screen's orientation. One such program that is Windows compatible is called "iRotate," which is available to download for free.

Turn your computer on and wait for it to load. Once your computer finishes loading, make sure any open programs are minimized or closed. Press and hold the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys on your keyboard. Press the corresponding arrow key on your keyboard for the direction to which you want to orient your screen. Press and hold the "Ctrl," "Alt" and up directional arrow key to return the screen to its regular orientation. iRotate Application Open the iRotate download site (see Bottom of page.) in your web browser. Click on the blue download link on the left-hand side of the page. The download link contains the text "iRotate" and has an icon of a floppy disc. Save the file to your computer. Open the iRotate file and follow the on-screen prompts to install the program to your computer. You can choose whether or not to put a shortcut on your desktop, place a folder for the program in your "Start" menu or automatically run the program after it finishes installing itself. Right-click on the iRotate icon in your taskbar. The iRotate icon is a blue rectangle that will display information about your graphic properties when you hover your mouse over the icon. Select a screen orientation from the drop-down menu. You can choose a 90-degree, 180-degree or 270-degree rotation. The "Normal Landscape" option returns your screen to its default orientation. iRotate
