I have a co-worker that was going to do Ctl_alt_Del to lock the comptuer and
the desktop went sideways.
Top of the desktop display is to the right, almost like landscape.
How do we get it back to normal portrait setting?

Re: Desktop turned sideways, how to fix?

Right-click and select Properties, then check the display adapter settings
(probably an Advanced setting). Sounds like it's been told that the screen
rotated (my LCD can do this...)

Thanks. I looked at the display settings and there was nothing.
Found another site that also suggested using the Ctl+Alt + one of the arrow
keys.
That worked.
Now he can see his screen more betteror without laying on the ground.

In the future, he can use his new-found knowledge when he takes his
computer to a Toga-LAN party...
