Default What did I do?? Computer screen crazies!

Yesterday while dusting my office, I looked up and my computer screen was sideways. Of course, I tried all the standard, reboot, call daughter LOL. She said try Google Mom. Found it!!

If you ever see something so crazy - the "trick" is - Control + Alt + the arrow keys. I needed to use the right arrow key but just keep trying til you get that sucker facing correctly!! Who knew you could even manage to do such a thing!!

Have not had that problem yet but thanks for the tip. Good to know. Dh keeps telling me to quit moving the monitor. Sorry but I don't dust around only, I also dust underneath.

Must be something special about your system, because I just had to try it (wanted to see if I could get it to go sideways) and nothing happened. It's amazing how many problems we can solve (or create) with google.

I used to do that with a small Netbook that I used for Kindle before I got a Kindle. Turn it sideways and hold it like a book to read.

That's why the dusting & other stuff gets done for my clients. My house gets a swipe & fluff. If that's not good enough, whomever doesn't like it can 'fix' it.
