How to Rotate the Screen in Windows XP

Nobody is above mistake. You may find your screen rotated after you have erroneously press some series of keys, do not get mad at yourself. There is solution to it. Re-setting your screen back can be done in two ways. 

Here is the solution when problem like this occur. Here we go!

Step 1- press “Ctrl-Alt” and the arrow keys (left, right, up and down) to rotate the screen.

Step 2- make sure you persist in pressing the hotkeys along with the arrow keys until the screen
 orientation display what you want. Note: this always works when the video drivers (VGA Adapter driver) on windows XP is available. However, if it fails to work, proceed to step 3 right away.

Step 3- click on the “Start Menu” then proceed to “Control Panel” and select “Display.” After that, switch to “Setting” tab and select the “Advanced” button. Now verify by clicking the “Orientation” Option and set the orientation to your choice.

  4. Didn't work. Under Advanced my tabs available are:
    General, Adapter, Monitor, Troubleshoot, Color Management and Catalyst Control Center (video card driver). That may be the problem. When I open that up there are no rotating options there.
