Question about Computers & Internet
Can I mount a widescreen monitor 90 degrees and view files portrait?
on most monitors, no you cannot view the screen on portrait.
There are some larger, wide screen monitors that I have seen that allow you to twist and see the screen and picture vertical.
You have to get a monitor specifically to do this in the specs of the monitor.
Here is a Google search on models that you can do this with.

Actually, you can do that with almost any monitor. All you need is a software or driver to rotate the contents of your screen by software. AFAIK, any reasonably new nVidia video card support this feature - see NVRotate. You probably can do the same with several other video cards, so try yo get more information about yours before you decide to buy another one just for this.
Of course, your monitor also need a stand that allows you to mount it in portrait mode, or even better, one that lets you change it to portrait or landscape modes. Once a rarity, this seems to be easier to find these days. Check out this Google search to find some products.
