Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
My primary computer is my laptop but I use an extended desktop on a second monitor. Stupidly, I turned my keyboard upside-down
and banged it against my desk to remove some crumbs. I don't know what
I hit, but my displays became disoriented. One was upside-down and the other was 90 degrees off.
I have figured out that hitting Ctrl+Alt+arrow keys will let me turn my display around. However, it turns both monitors at the same time so I can only get one to orient the correct way while the other is always 90 degrees different from the first.
I have tried turning off my extended desktop and restarting, but when I re-extended the desktop, it was still oriented incorrectly.
I also tried turning off my extended desktop and tried to use Ctrl+Alt+arrow keys to orient my primary monitor (the laptop) to the same wrong orientation as the secondary monitor. I was hoping that I could then re-extended the desktop and rotate them both together to the correct orientation. But when I turned off my extended desktop, pressing Ctrl+Alt+arrow keys no longer rotated the desktop on my laptop at all.
Does anyone know how to rotate a single monitor at a time? I don't think it matters, but my laptop is a Lenovo ThinkPad, my secondary monitor is an Acer, and my keyboard is an Logitech.
Click on the extended monitor which is out of sync with the main monitor and click CTRL + ALT + UP
