Simple question my screen has gone to landscape

Sorry for being useless round a computer but my screen has gone to landscape mode (if that is correct term), it has turned the other way so I can't read it. How do I turn it back please? Never happened before but I leant on keyboard and it changed. Help!,

No problem, this advice should help you out!

Here's the important part:
"If you’re running Windows 7 or 8, you may be able to quickly rotate your screen 90°, 180° or 270° at any time by pressing three keys.
Simply hold down Control + Alt and then select the arrow key for which way you want your laptop or PC screen to face.
Your monitor will then go briefly go blank and will return in a few seconds facing a different orientation. To restore this back to the traditional settings, press Control + Alt + the up arrow."


Hope that helps.

Welcome to our forum Kaz1207.

Give this a try.

Right tick on your Desktop and select Screen Resolution and you should see
Orientation. You can make the needed changes there.

Good post Jack. I suspect you are in Portrait or Landscape flipped. With most setups you would want to change it to Landscape.

Screen rotation toggle landscape to portrait
I often work on projects in portrait mode. I do this either through the nVidia control panel or Windows 7 Control Panel. Is there an easier way to toggle between landscape and portrait orientation? Can this be done with a batch file or keystroke macro? Thanks.
