Hi Blueyonder poster, do you mean the desktop display image is
rotated, or do you mean the desktop icons are in a different position?
RIGHT click anywhere blank on desktop
Select "Properties"
Click the "Desktop" tab
Listed in the background box are options for the display image
and above will be a preview
Click on any of the other options, are they rotated also?
If not, and it is just the one that is, then it was the actual image
that was rotated. Locate the bitmap for image and open in paint
In Paints toolbar you will find option to rotate

Thanks for reporting back. Also, if you want to prevent that from
accidentally happening again, you might want to poke around in Control
Panel>Display>Settings for an option to turn OFF the keyboard shortcuts
relating to the display. It's probably in there somewhere.

It's been posted before in 24HSHD, however there are either a lot of
clever cats , less clever grandchildren and then the (grand)parents
rotating the display more by accident.
