My computer screen has gone upside down - how do I change it back?

This is a common issue we get asked often and no you do not need to physically rotate your screen.

There is a simple process to put it back but it is caused by accidentally hitting keys on the keyboard turning the screen upside down.

If you hold down the CTRL and the ALT key and hit the up arrow that will straighten your screen out. You can also try the left and right arrows if your screen is sideways and you can also hit the down arrow if you want to turn it upside down for some reason and that's it!

If you ever need to do this on purpose then the following key presses will rotate your screen.

  • Ctrl + Alt + Right Arrow: To flip the screen to the right.
  • Ctrl + Alt + Left Arrow: To flip the screen to the left.
  • Ctrl + Alt + Up Arrow: To set the screen to its normal display settings.
  • Ctrl + Alt + Down Arrow: To flip the screen upside down.
