Windows XP: Flipping the screen upside down and back again
Once, at University, someone had flip
ped the screen
s of all the public computers (running on Windows XP) of the English
Department upside down
. The wallpaper, deskto
p icons, fonts, mouse-cursor and even the start-up screen
...everything was displayed or moved upside down
. People could not check out their e-mails or surf or do anything.
reverse the upside down screen
mode, press ctrl, alt and the up arrow (arrows console) at the same time; the screen
will probably go blank. Turn off the monito
r, turn it on again and the display will be normal again. If you possess a sense of humour or are antisocial, press ctrl, alt and the down
arrow simultaneously, turn off the monito
r, turn it on again and everyone (excluding the culprit) will be desperate --> upside down
! Works for Windows XP Home and Prof.
