Change screen orientation


Computer users occasionally have a need to rotate, or "flip," a monitor display to be better able to read long documents or to view pictures. Because rotating a computer screen is such a basic function, modern operating systems (Windows XP and up) include hot keys and display options that enable the user to rotate the computer screen by 90, 180 and 270 degrees. Rotating the computer screen allows for more display options. For instance, when rotated 90 degrees, a 1680x1050 monitor becomes a 1050x1680 monitor, which provides more vertical pixels than a standard display.

Windows XP/Vista Monitor Orientation
Minimize any windows or programs to the taskbar. Click the desktop. Press "CTRL" + "ALT" at the same time. Press one of the arrow keys to flip the monitor orientation by 90, 180 or 270 degrees. The left arrow rotates the computer screen 90 degrees; the down arrow rotates the computer screen 180 degrees; the right arrow rotates the computer screen 270 degrees; the up arrow resets the monitor orientation. Rotate the computer screen in Windows Vista by opening the Control Panel, searching for "Tablet PC" and changing the "Orientation" drop box to the desired rotation. b> Windows 7 Monitor Orientation b> Click the Start menu at the lower-left hand part of the screen, and open the Control Panel. Select "Display," then click "Change display settings" from the left column. When using multiple monitors, select the monitor that you would like to rotate. Click the drop box next to the "Orientation:" option. Select the desired rotation and click "Apply." Click "Keep Changes" or "Revert," depending on preference. Click "Apply" in the Display Settings window. Click "OK" to finish. Hope this helps

How to Rotate My Desktop Display!!! It's on it's side!!!


I have had many requests for this one, Oh no my desktop has been turned on it's side!!! <br /> The desktop is rotated 90 degress either to the left or to the right and can make life rather difficult.<br /> <br /> It is in some cases a terrifying sight.<br /> Well we are going to set it back to the default 0 degrees, Landscape view, that we all use and have come to love.<br /> <br /> There are to ways of doing this.<br /> This is the first way;<br /> On a normal desktop display, one that is in landscape 0 degree view, you should find an Nvidia green logo, placed at the bottom right hand side of your screen. Located near the Volume silver speaker icon. <br /> Right click the Nvidia logo and navigate to Rotation Settings.<br /> Select ROTATE 0 Degrees.<br /> <br /> <br /> The other way is to navigate to the control panel and double click Nvidia Control Panel.<br /> On the Left hand side under the Display heading, click Rotate Display.<br /> Ensure to select the NO ROTATION (Landscape) Option.<br /> <br /> Happy Computing!<br /> damnor01

Have windows 7 on a laptop. something hit the keyboard and now the screen is rotated 90 degrees to the right, so to look at the computer I have to hold it like a book.


What you want to do is:

  1. Right click on the desktop
  2. Press "Screen Resolution"
  3. Go to orientation
  4. Change it to "Landscape"
  5. and all should be fine!

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 monitor display changed from being horizontal to vertical how can I change it back?


If you have an Nvidia Graphics card then on the bottom right hand side of your task bar, next to the time, it's a green icon. A Nvidia logo is displayed. Left click on it and move your mouse over rotation settings, should be set to rotate 0 degrees.
Can also access through control panel, then Nvidia control panel, then on the left menu rotate display, set it to no rotation 0 degrees.
Please take the time to rate my expertise.
Thanks

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 is horizontal how do i get it back to it's normal view?


Almost positive it's a hardware related feature.It's usually an option in the video card driver's settings.

You can change it by changing the driver settings for video card in the control panel. An option is usually there in the video card driver settings that allows you to rotate the display horizontally (90 degree or 270 degree) and vertically (180 degree).

Look trough the control panel carefully, find the Video Card Driver... change the rotation settings to 0 degrees and thats it !!!

Go ahead and give it a try... Its surely a prank played on you by your pal...



Do let me know if the problem still persists after this. Just leave a comment here...

Monitor problem


I have seen this before. The computer I did this on, while holding down the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys you press one of the arrow keys to rotate the screen. Depending on the arrow key, determines how much rotation you want. This might not be the solution you want.

It is the display adapter software that does this. You will need to go to your display adapter software to get the correct key bindings. I am not talking about the "desktop display settings". If you have an nvidia graphics card then it will be the nvidia graphics adapter software that you installed. Not the driver, but the software that allows you to tweak your graphics adapter.

My advise, use that software to rotate your screen to the correct orientation, then disable those key bindings.
