    Try this:
    In a blank area on your desktop screen, right click and select Properties. Then select Desktop. You will see a tab for Default. Click on that to restore the desktop to its default, which is right side up.

    An elaborate array of mirrors would be far more interesting...

    Are you sure you haven't fallen over and are viewing the screen from a strange angle;-)
    But Beerman's tip should sort you out

    I'd love to know how to do this actually lol.

    Do you have an HP monitor?

    Some display drivers have the option to rotate the image so you can rotate your screen to a portrait position etc.

    You should be able to change it by pressing ctrl + Alt and one of the arrow keys

    I think you must have pressed ctrl alt and right arrow by accident to rotate it. I flipped my screen upside down accidentally before by pressing alt ctrl and the up arrow. Now I do it all the time at work to confuse colleagues

    Not all monitors support it though...

    isnt it ctrl + alt + a direction key or ctrl + shift + direction to do it and get it back
