Windows 7: AltGr + Left's altering, two functions: Chrome back and rotate screen

AltGr + Left's altering, two functions: Chrome back and rotate screen

First of all, I'm not sure if it's the right forum for this, dear moderator, by all means, move it to the appropriate one!

Google Chrome disabled the Back button for, going back in history, the function we used for ages, for no good reason. That's a Google thing. Now we have to use AltGr + Left for that. The Windows thing is, it rotates the screen for the same key combo.

My problem is, my computer does either one of those two, and I haven't yet figured out what determines when it will go back in Chrome history, or rotate the screen. As I use light virtualization, with the restart of the computer, at least I can reset the situation. It seems, after a restart, the Chrome back is the default function. But what triggers the screen rotation, then? I have no clue. What's wrong here?

This is a really interesting (I mean, puzzling and annoying) phenomenon. How does it work?
