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
