Try hard to do this.
Right click an empty area on your desktop and select "properties"
Click the "settings" tab then the advanced button.
Look for a rotate option in one of the tabs.

Hope this helps

How to Rotate a Computer Screen 90 Degrees

Perhaps you built your own monitor, and the screen is displaying at the wrong angle now that it's all set up. Maybe you installed a new graphics card or driver, and it appears something has gone horribly wrong. It's possible you're just being creative, and think it would be cool to lay your monitor on its side and still be able to use the computer. Or, most likely, your cat or kids pressed some mysterious key combination which rotated your screen for you, and you can't get it back. Don't worry; getting your screen to rotate 90 degrees is easier than you think.



1 Identify in which direction your screen needs to be rotated. There are four shortcut key combinations, and each will rotate your screen so that the top of the screen is at the top, bottom, left or right side of your monitor; you need to know which combination to choose. Say you are you trying to correct a mistake, and put the top of your screen back where it belongs--at the top of the monitor. Or you are trying to rotate your screen because you are using your monitor differently than most people do, and want the top of the screen to be at the left or right side of the monitor, or even upside-down.


2 Hold down "Ctrl + Alt" and the "up" arrow key if you want to return the top of your screen to the top of the monitor. "Ctrl + Alt + Left Arrow" will rotate your screen so that the top of the display is on the left side of your monitor, and using the Right Arrow will put it at the right side. The Down Arrow will turn your screen upside down if your monitor is right side up. Make sure you hold all three keys down long enough; the screen may go back for a moment as the screen is rotated.


3 Open your "Control Panel" if nothing is happening, and see if there is an option to "Enable Screen Rotation" under your Display options. If not, you may not be able to rotate your screen. This is especially common with older computers, as they have older graphics cards or integrated video If you have a newer computer, you may need to have the graphics drivers updated in order for the shortcut to work.


Tips & Warnings

If pets or children accidentally rotated your screen, consider finding a way to better protect your keyboard not just from accidental keystrokes, but from pet hair and kids' spills. A keyboard cover might be in order.

Hi,
You may try these steps. If you are facing a 90/180 degrees rotation issue with your displayed screen, this can be either due to a problem with your graphic card or a wrong manipulation of the hot keys of your keyboard. This problem can be easily fixed if you follow the steps below:
Solution 1
  • Step 1: With the Desktop screen displayed in front of you, use your mouse left-click to access the Graphic Properties? option
  • Step 2: Select the Rotation Tab
  • Step 3: Uncheck the box labeled Enable Rotation?
Solution 2
  • Step 1: With the Desktop screen displayed in front of you, use your mouses left-click to access the Properties? option
  • Step 2: Select the Parameters tab and click the “Advancedâ€? option
  • Step 3: From the displayed list, choose the name corresponding to your graphic card model
  • Step 4: Select the Rotateoption and change it to 0 degrees or to the “normalâ€? mode.
Solution 3
You can also make use of the hotkeys to change the rotation of your screen
Press CTRL+ALT Gr+Up/Down/Left/Right arrows
Solution 4
If none of the above solutions has solved your problem, this might be due to a bad configuration of your graphic card. I will strongly suggest you to contact a computer technician to fix this issue.

I hope this works for you. Good Luck!

The screen on my dell 2200 has flipped 90 degrees after my cat stepped on the keypad, how do i rectify this, back to normal.?


I have an Nvidia card on my laptop and I right click on a blank area of the screen and scroll down to Nvidia control center. Once that window comes up, there is a setting in the left pane that refers to display orientation. Ati has similar options for their cards.

Screen is sideways--reading horizontally, not vertically!


Traci,

Your cat probably enable your lcd monitor to a portrait mode. Go to your toolbars on the bottom R/H look for a graphic card settings and right clicked, then look for rotation settings and setting to restore to defaults. Well... hopes that's your case. Have a nice day!

Monitor screen went sideways


Try the ALT key and the Up Arrow.
If that does not work, try CRT ALT UP and DOWN arrows till you can rotate your display.
