Do you mean the printing has moved from Portrait to Landscape? If you do, before printing click File then Print then go into properties and change the orientation back to Portrait.
Hope that helps.

    Hi no...it's nothing to do with printing....it's her actual desktop screen (home screen with icons) has rotated...I remember this happening on my own Dell lappy and I'm sure the arrow thing worked for me to sort it then - but I can't work out how to rotate my own laptop screen now - in order to work out how to get her's back if you know what I mean - so we're well and truly stuck...it's dead annoying because obviously it makes it really tricky even for her to use her mouse whilst trying to sort this problem!

    Check out the Nvideo properties, I bet it's there. It is in its control panel.
    Good luck

With a simple key-combination, you can rotate your screen into any direction: To rotate the screen, press Ctrl + Alt + Arrow key. The arrow you press determines what direction the screen will be turned.

  • Try pressing Ctrl + Alt + UP Arrow Keys(or one of the other Arrow Keys).
  • Also you could right-click on empty Desktop > Graphics Options > Rotation.

My windows 7 laptop display has rotated 90 degrees how do i change it back ?


Most of the time the display can be rotated back with one of these key combinations:

1. Ctrl+Alt+ Arrow Key (Up, Down, Left or Right)
2. Ctrl+Shift+ Arrow Key (Up, Down, Left or Right)
3. Ctrl+Alt+Shift+ Arrow Key (Up, Down, Left or Right)

Your best bet is to try the Ctrl+Alt+Up Arrow first.

My screen is upside down and my mouse right and left side are reversed, how can I change it back?


On my shuttle, there is a combination of button to turn the screen 90 degrees to the left or right. Something Like CTRL + ALT + Up Arrow or CTRL + SHIFT + arrow or ALT + SHIFT + Arrow , to rotate to different angle , also there are Viewing options in your display drivers. In the ATI control panel, there is a tab rotation to rotate the desktop 90 degrees to the right or left or 180 °

Try this.

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.

Screen orientation


Good morning pimelles, Somewhere on your PC there is a program that is capable of rotating your screen through a key combination. I?ve read some accounts that claim this feature is built into Windows XP but I think it is only included on the tablet version of Windows. At any rate the typical combination is holding the ?Ctrl? and ?Alt? keys down and pressing the up arrow key. That should return your screen to the normal orientation. If that doesn?t work let us know your video card manufacturers model number and please don?t forget to rate the posting.
