If you can reach the desktop. Right click on the background and then choose Properties. Then choose the settings tab. Hopefully there is an option to change the orientation.

Hope this helps

Thanks for reading!

Tip

Lost your File Menu in IE (Internet Explorer)? PC's/Laptops


Do the following to retrieve your File Menu. Lock the ToolBar instructions as well, and how to minimize and maximize (restore) your IE screen.

Alt - F. This will bring up the file menu.
Use the arrow keys to scroll over to the "View" tab.
Select Toolbars, (do not click) and move the mouse over to "Menu Bar" and click if there is not a check mark.
Once this is checked, the File Menu should stay. Close out IE and re-open to save the changes. The file menu should then remain at place. You can also "lock" the tool bar as well: Follow these same steps: this time at the bottom of the list under Toolbars: make sure the Lock ToolBar is checked. If not, if desired, click this.
Also, if this does not work, you may have accidentally hit the F11 button which maximizes the screen to "Full View". If this is the case, simply push the F11 buttom to minimize back to original size. If the screen minimizes to it's smallest view setting, simply click the box in the middle (next to X close out button), and it will Maximise the screen, but to normal size, and the file menu will remain as well. If the file menu is not there, hit F11 again, and then if still not there (making sure screen is at normal view). Follow the instructions above to retrieve the file menu.

Help.. my acer aspire computer screen has turned vertical on my notebook and the cursor isn't working.. what do I do?


Well, to get the screen back to normal, press Ctrl + Alt + Up Arrow. As for the cursor, try rebooting the computer after changing the screen back to normal. If that doesn't work, try another external mouse to get to the mouse settings from the control panel and see if anything has changed.
I hope this helps! Thank you for using FixYa!

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.

My computer screen is turned sideways. How do i get it back to normal?


Some video cards support screen rotation. You may have accomplished this by pressing CTRL + ALT + Left Arrow. To change it back simply press CTRL + ALT + Up Arrow. If this does not work then try restarting. If that does not work you may have to change your view from Landscape to Portrait in you video card software program. If it is an Nvidia card then open display properties>>Settings>>nvrotate.

My desktop on my lenovo 0769 is turned sideways


That sounds like your video card drivers are set to rotate your screen. If you right click on your desktop away from any icons in the menu you should see the graphics card properties for your NVIDA/INTEL/ATI card depending on what is installed. You will just need to go through those screens to configure the drivers until you see the section for rotating the screen. Just set it back to normal once you locate it and hit apply.

If you do not see anything from a video card manufacture you can try clicking on proprieties in that same menu. You will see a new window called Display Properties and your driver settings could be here. Check the Settings take and the Advanced button if you are having problems finding it. Feel free to link to a screen shot of what you are seeing in the menus if you can not find the rotation settings.
