Unsure if there will be an option in the taskbar? (Bottom right corner)

press ctrl + alt + up

if you want it upside down again, press ctrl + alt + down

hit crtl+alt+down arrow that should fix it

all 4 arrows should change the direction of the screen

You need to right click on your mouse but when you are on your desktop screen, not on a webpage and go to rotation and normal - i know its hard to do upside down but my kids are always doing it to my pc!

there should be a tab in your vid card settings(control pannel)
