How-to: Rotate Windows Screen Display

Windows display settings - orientationI don't go looking for trouble to shoot; it seems to find me. I certainly don't go looking for Microsoft Windows trouble to shoot. In this case, it's my neighbour across the street ambushed me with this little problem - a randomly rotated display, unbidden. We worked it out between us.

Question is, why the heck did his Windows 7 display suddenly kick into rotated view after exiting the screen saver?!?!

To change the screen orientation:
  • Right click on the desktop, go to Personalisation.
  • Select Tablet PC settings
  • Select Display
  • Change the screen orientation:
    - click on Primary display- select Landscape- click on Apply
Hey presto - back to normal! RC
