HELP! I'm disorientated

DS slapped my keyboard while looking at gorilla pictures. My screen content is now lying sideways - he has re-orientated it 45 degrees! The tool bar is running up the side of my screen and as I type the words and dribbling down the screen.

I am having trouble not falling over laughing, but dear god, help me! I have tried picking up and placing the toolbar back where it should be but no joy.

Hi Merryberry. I've forwarded a link to my geek husband, hopefully he'll know what to do.

depends on what you are using. Are you on laptop or desktop?

try Ctrl+Alt+Arrow key first.

Sorry, geek DH has no clue and he generally knows everything! Hope you find the answer. Maybe get DS to bash it again? My dd always manages to do stuff I never knew computers were capable of when she gets hold of the keyboard!

Switch on and off?

I think you can adjust the settings through your control panel - resetting as far back as you want eg 24 hours, 7 days etc. Not sure if this would work?

Oh i've done this before. I'm just trying to think what it was that got me out of it!

45 degrees? not 90?

did you sort it? You need to go to display in control pannel there, then go click advanced and flick through the tabs until you find the option. Mine doesn't actually do that, so Im not sure exactly where it will be. Otherwise it's a registry error.

right more click over desktop
there should be an option to rotate the screen...

right mouse click then it is in graphics options or display modes (is on my work laptop...)
