This is ok, either someone's yanking your chain, or you accidently activated an ability of your graphics chip, this mode is for "tablet" PCs which have a portrait mode. you most likely have an icon in the bottom left of your screen by the clock for graphics settings, one of these will be to rotate the screen.

it is also possible that this ability may be programmed to one of the hotkeys, however without model info I cannot tell.

your mouse should have flipped too, if not then someone may be fooling with you..

check if you can click your icons... if you cannot then right click on the desktop and change the wallpaper on your desktop, also re-enable your icons from this menu, you may also need to unhide your start bar


hope this helps

L shaped desk


The desk extension is called a return, see link for an example of a right return to fit a metal desk.. You could use a return as a separate desk by making a bracket fit to a wall.

The screen is turned sideways


Hello,

It sounds like you accidentally press the key combination to rotate the screen. This is a feature on some video cards to allow portrait display with the right monitor. Your monitor does not rotate so the picture is sideways. To correct this problem simply click CTRL + ALT + Up Arrow and your screen should return to the correct orientation.

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

My Dell D610 is always on when I get to work


if you are using Windows Vista, you might haven't shut down your system. Make sure that you did click the Shut Down link at the menu.

Change screen orientation from portrait to landscape


Kids... my students found this trick.
RIGHT CLICK on the desktop. Look in Graphic Controls.. there are some that allow turning of the screen. There are keyboard commands that allow this too. Return to correct orientation and remove the checkmark to allow that.

Display is Sideway's.


You might be able to find what you are looking for in the display properties.  Right click on your desktop and select your video card.  There you should find screen setup.
