WHile cleaning my legitech keyboard, I made the desktop appear upside down on the screen. How do I invert?


The keystroke combination to flip the image upside down isCTRL-ALT-downarrow key... to flip the image rightsideup again, pressCTRL-ALT-up arrow key.smile.gif

If this does resolve the upside down image.
Check your video card graphics settings. Nvidia has something called NVrotate:
Right click your desktop, select properties. Go the settings tab.Click advanced. There do you have a tab for your graphics card? If you do, After selecting the tab it displays options. NVrotate. That rotates the screen.

Good luck and hope this helps!

Monitor is displaying upside down


Some video adapters have the capability to rotate the picture so it appears sideways or upside down.

Right click on an empty area of the screen, select properties. In Display Properties, select Settings, then Advanced. On the Dell I have, there is an Intel Graphics Tab- select this or a similiar Tab, then the Graphics Properties button, then Display Settings. The Rotation selections are found here.

Then exact sequence and steps may be different for your machine.

Ctrl,Alt and the arrow up, down key should fix it. Check your pc because some use a different key code. If no right click on desktop, go to properties, display settings and adjust the screen.
