Change screen orientation


Computer users occasionally have a need to rotate, or "flip," a monitor display to be better able to read long documents or to view pictures. Because rotating a computer screen is such a basic function, modern operating systems (Windows XP and up) include hot keys and display options that enable the user to rotate the computer screen by 90, 180 and 270 degrees. Rotating the computer screen allows for more display options. For instance, when rotated 90 degrees, a 1680x1050 monitor becomes a 1050x1680 monitor, which provides more vertical pixels than a standard display.

Windows XP/Vista Monitor Orientation
Minimize any windows or programs to the taskbar. Click the desktop. Press "CTRL" + "ALT" at the same time. Press one of the arrow keys to flip the monitor orientation by 90, 180 or 270 degrees. The left arrow rotates the computer screen 90 degrees; the down arrow rotates the computer screen 180 degrees; the right arrow rotates the computer screen 270 degrees; the up arrow resets the monitor orientation. Rotate the computer screen in Windows Vista by opening the Control Panel, searching for "Tablet PC" and changing the "Orientation" drop box to the desired rotation. b> Windows 7 Monitor Orientation b> Click the Start menu at the lower-left hand part of the screen, and open the Control Panel. Select "Display," then click "Change display settings" from the left column. When using multiple monitors, select the monitor that you would like to rotate. Click the drop box next to the "Orientation:" option. Select the desired rotation and click "Apply." Click "Keep Changes" or "Revert," depending on preference. Click "Apply" in the Display Settings window. Click "OK" to finish. Hope this helps

My full desktop screen, welcome screen and any program i use is sideways on my laptop


RMB on the desktop, select "properties" from the drop down menu, then choose screen settings, you should then be able to rotate your desktop to the correct position.

Another way may be to press the CTL, ALT or Changecase key and the arrow up at the same time to re-position it, depending on your graphics driver.

My screen is side ways how do i put it back to normal


Do you have a rotating monitor? There are a few that can be rotated 90 degrees in the plane of the screen for a "portrait view" instead of the standard landscape view, and they will automatically swap horizontal and vertical signals as needed. If you have one of these, the position detector switch is stuck in the wrong position. You may be able to get it unstuck by rotating to the other position and back again.

There are some programs (e. g., Acrobat Reader) that let you rotate the view of the file you have open, but that only affects the contents of the window, not everything on the screen. I'm not aware of a program that rotates the full screen view for the entire system.

How do I fix my screen back to normal? My child did something now the entire screen when turned on is sideways. Help....I can't tilt my head and work on the computer at the same time.


Hi There.

Sounds like a up coming little computer guru ! I am going to base my answer on the Intel graphics driver because (there are many) and non was specified. You may feel free to ask for further clarification and I will do my best to answer.

The Intel drivers have a feature allowing rotation. Typically, it's really easy to bump the button to change this. I have not figured out the keycombination yet though.

Right Click on your desktop: You should see a menu of choices. Look specifically for:

1) Graphics Options
2) This will have a little > that points t "Rotation"

When you see rotation; you will need to move it "90 deg" either to the right or left; to set the screen back to normal.

Hope this helps. If it does; please leave positive feedback , I appriciate it.

to rotate the screen in the laptop you can do in two ways.make sure you close all the programs running in the computer before attempting these two steps
1) press and hold the ctrl and alt in the keypad they'll be located at the bottom left part of keyboard..while holding these two keys simultaneously press any one of the four navigation keys(Up,Down,Right,Left arrow keys) depending on how the screen is currently..if its upside down press up arrow key if its tilted towards right press left vice versa.
2)right click on desktop choose graphics settings and then choose display settings where you'll have the option to rotate the screen..
