This answer was rated:

how do I turn my windows screen from vertical to horizontal when I turn on my computer? I forgot how to turn the page so I don't have to turn my head sideways.


Please follow the steps below:

  • Press and hold Control, Alt and the left arrow key.
  • Let go.
  • If it doesn't work, try pressing Ctrl, Alt and the rest of the arrow keys, one at a time.

If the above doesn't work, please do the following:

  • Minimize all your windows
  • On an empty spot on your screen, press the mouse right button
  • Press Properties on the menu that shwos up
  • Click on the Settings tab
  • Click on Advanced
  • Click on the Adapter tab and note which one it is. We'll need to know it if the below step doesn't apply.
  • See if there is another tab called Rotation. If so, click on it. It should be straightforward how to put the screen back to normal.
