Screen upside down
I don't know which keys I pressed which caused my screen to rotate 180
degrees - the screen is upside down! How do I rotate it back to the normal
view? I have turned my monitor upside down so I can do some work.

Thanks for your help.


Basharat.

The developer was adding support for a 90 degree rotate for portrait
mode and figured "What the heck ..."

Some people believe that if something can be done, it must be done :-)

The ability to rotate the screen image is a feature of your video
card, to help it work with monitors that rotate to portrait
orientation. Almost certainly you accidentally pressed Ctrl-Alt, and
some arrow key.

Rotate it back using those keys.

That's the most common thing that happens.
