Computer Screen rotation
Use your computer’s hotkey combination to turn your screen the right way. The most common key combination is pressing Ctrl + Alt and one of the arrow keys at the same time.
The hotkeys will either:
- Rotate the screen - You would need to rotate left (or right) twice to restore an upside down image
- Have fixed positions - You will have four hot keys, one for each orientation. For example, the right hotkey is always sideways.
Most monitors have an Auto button. Pressing this makes the monitor automatically detect the signal and calibrate it to work properly with your monitor.
Reset your monitor
Your monitor will have an option to restore to factory default settings. This can be access through the on-screen display menu. You can usually access this using the menu button on the monitor. Navigate the menu and choose the default settings or factory reset option.
A couple of button presses and everything should be back to normal once more, letting you get on with what you need to do and, perhaps, giving you a nice little trick for next April fool’s day.
