Not a key combo--it's a display properties setting. Look for an icon for your
video card
in the lower right corner Notification Area. Right click on it to
adjust. If you don't have the icon, go to Display Properties, Settings,
Advanced, Rotation.
Or try control-alt and one of the arrow keys at the same time.

I touched a button on the keyboard that turned the page sideways.. it turned it to the left. how do I turn the page right side up?


Actually you hit a combination of keys. Most likely you hit Ctrl+Alt and an arrow key. Try Ctrl+Alt+the up arrow. If that rotates the screen to upside down, repeat the combination twice more (or use Ctrl+Alt+the down arrow twice).

If that doesn't work, if you have a Windows OS, try the Screen Resolution or Graphics Display settings. Right click on the desktop anyplace with no running programs or icons, select Screen Resolution and then change the drop down for Orientation. This works on my desktops. For my laptop, it's the Graphic Display and then a similar orientation label.

I hope this helps.

The monitor picture has moved 90 degrees


Right click on the monitor display away from icons ans on the desktop. Scroll down to either properties or if it says ATI or Nvidia control panel. If it is under properties look for the txt "Orientation", click on "Landscape" or "0" degrees whichever it states. Click apply and OK. If you bring up the control panel for display settings, then look in the left hand pane for "screen Orientation" and again choose "Landscape" or "0" degrees....whichever one it states.

WHile cleaning my legitech keyboard, I made the desktop appear upside down on the screen. How do I invert?


The keystroke combination to flip the image upside down isCTRL-ALT-downarrow key... to flip the image rightsideup again, pressCTRL-ALT-up arrow key.smile.gif

If this does resolve the upside down image.
Check your video card graphics settings. Nvidia has something called NVrotate:
Right click your desktop, select properties. Go the settings tab.Click advanced. There do you have a tab for your graphics card? If you do, After selecting the tab it displays options. NVrotate. That rotates the screen.

Good luck and hope this helps!

Inadvertently rotated display


The solution was easy. Press [CTRL, ALT, up arrow] simultaneously and the display goes back to normal.

If anyone knows why CTRL plus left click (and CTR plus right click, for that matter) rotates the display I would be curious to get the information.

SCREEN TURNED TO LEFT WHEN I HIT KEYBOARD WITH BOOK COVER


1. If you right click on the desktop and look at graphics properties, or something similar to that, then you should get a menu for your display adapter control panel. Usually the screen rotation is right there. Sometimes it's as easy as a CTRL + arrow key combination, but I'd rather see you adjust it from a menu.

2. Ctrl-Alt-Up - right side up
Ctrl-Alt-Right - 90 degrees
Ctrl-Alt-Down - 180 degrees
Ctrl-Alt-Left - 270 degrees (If that doesn’t work, try Ctrl-Shift-R)

3. If you have the intel video chipset, I believe pressing CTRL+ALT+ one of the arrow keys should fix your problem.

I think it was ctrl+alt+right, but if that doesn't work, try the other three arrow keys.

However, if that doesn't work (especially if you do not have intel video), then right click on your desktop, go to properties, and go to the advanced tab. There you should find some setting that will allow you to reverse the rotation.
