vertical desktop

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Preferred Customer, Apr 17, 2008.

  1. I am not sure how this happened, but yesterday when I was responding to a
    spybot warning and denying a change to my registry I clicked on the mouse to
    deny the change and my entire desktop moved to the right and went vertical.
    ( by vertical I mean, everything is sideways. in order to see a normal
    desktop I have to eithr stand the monitor on its side or turn my head 90
    degrees.) Moving the taskbar back does not solve the problem. When I do
    that the functions on the task bare remain in the vertical mode and icons
    remain vertical.

    Does anyone have a fix for this?

    Start | Run <type in>
    Desk.cpl
    <enter>

    Settings - Advanced -> it's in there somewhere it's a function of your
    video card.

    There should be an option to turn the display by a hotkey, disable
    this option.
