    On the desktop

    I right click and it just says arrange icons, refresh, paste, paste shortcut, new and properties.

    Mine did this last week took me hours to sort it and still unsure where I found the answer.

    I found something that said restore settings from a few days ago, clicked yes and it re-booted the computer and all was back to normal.

    It did warn me I would lose any information saved from a few days ago, but hey my neck was getting sore by this point.

    Sorry missed out a step, should be graphics options, rotation, then normal or 180 degrees

    It may vary slightly depending on the graphics card that's installed, there's usually a shortcut to the feature which is what some people accidentally trigger.

    lol :giggle:

    Think only certain graphic cards to it, though not really sure what use it actually is :? unless you need to see your monitor upright while lying on your side, for what ever reason :whistling:

    There's various uses. The obvious one is if you have a projector mounted from the ceiling. In this case you'd need the display rotated upside-down as the projector would be mounted upside-down. :thumbsup:
