How can I change orientation on a Panasonic Touchbook?


If you have Windows XP then you should be
able to change the screen orientation as follows:

Hold down both the "Alt" and "Ctrl" Keys simultaneously.

While holding down these two keys, press either
the Up Arrow Key or the Right Arrow Key.
Release all three keys and the screen will have
rotated 90 degrees.

You may also have to try Alt + Ctrl + Down Arrow
or Left Arrow. You also might have to repeat the
key combination 2-3 times until you are in the
correct orientation.

Good Luck!

Try pressing Ctrl + Alt + UP Arrow Key, or try Ctrl + Alt + and a different Arrow Key.

If that does not work: Right-click on empty Desktop > Graphics Options > Rotation.

or
Press "Ctrl-Alt" and an arrow key (left, right, up or down) to rotate the screen.
Continue pressing the hotkeys and arrow keys until you reach the desired rotation. This works with most video drivers on Windows XP. If it doesn't,

Click "Start," then "Control Panel," then "Display," then the "Settings" tab. Click the "Advanced" button. Check for an "Orientation" option. Select your desired orientation.

HP 1740 screen image rotated 90 degrees - how to move back


Hello,

On most video cards the key combinations of ctrl+alt+left arrow, ctrl+alt+right arrow, ctrl+alt+up arrow or ctrl+alt+down arrow will allow you to rotate the screen display in any direction. Each key combination will rotate the screen in the direction of the key press.

I hope this helps, If so please rate our solution.
