Windows 7: Emergency- My screen has turned 90 degrees

Emergency- My screen has turned 90 degrees

Evereything is turned on its side- mouse control is similarly changed- up is right and down is left. I am current writing from top to bottom of the screen. I was trying to get rid of those probably scam websites which say scanning for trojan- install Windows Defender- only total close of all windows would get rid of it. I was preparing to restart and the screen view went on its side. I restarted and its a bizarre as before. My wife will blame me big time.

That option's only available if you have the specific graphic driver/card. For instance, if they didn't have Intel graphics, you wouldn't have the option in the context menu.

First off stating what graphics card and drivers you have or updating it in your system specs would be nice.

Thanks- that was a life saver- why Windows 7 has that option on the desktop is almost beyond sense.

Glad it's sorted out. I think the idea is that you can rotate the whole monitor so that an A4 style document will fill the screen.

Did you mean to write to this thread as I can't see where you are referring to.

I would give specs if I know how to find it and how to understand it. All I know is I have a FMV Deskpower Monitor. I'd certainly wish to update the drivers- but that require knowing what I have- I know there's software for that but my wife would be unhappy if I installed anything.

Yes, I did. You don't have to download or install anything. Just follow the instructions here - How to - System Specs

Add the relevant info, graphics card, CPU, etc. You can get to the link here on one of your posts-

Airbot is not trying to be awkward. It just makes it easier for us to suggest solutions if your specs are entered.
