SPIN THE SCREEN

On many XP (and some Windows 9x) PCs there is a hidden facility, built into the graphics card/adaptor software that lets you rotate the screen display. This can be quite useful when using an LCD monitor, for example, some of which can be rotated to provide a ‘Portrait’ view, which some users prefer, when using Desktop Publishing (DTP), web layout and word processing applications.

On some PCs with ATI and NVIDIA graphics adaptors the screen rotate function is assigned to a memorable keyboard shortcut; Ctrl + Alt + left/right cursor arrow is used on several graphics cards. On others it’s buried in Display Properties (right-click empty area of desktop, select Properties, click Settings then Advanced button. If your PC doesn’t have this facility you can try it out with the 30-day trial-version of Pivot Pro, the screen rotation program supplied with many rotating monitors. If you fancy a little fun try a tiny freeware utility called Rotate. It randomly flips and rotates the screen but returns it to its proper state when a key is pressed.
