The monitors orientation is askewed how can I return the viewing area to its default setting?

There is an LG 1911 monitor where the screen orientation has been changed accidentally from horizontal to vertical. How will I go about changing it back to its default setting?

Thanks!

Btw, the Orientation may also be called Rotation. Here's what the Graphics Option fly-out looks like on one of my XP systems:

Right click on the desktop and choose Screen Resolution.
Change the Orientation to what ever you need.

Well, you could still do Control Panel> Display and then click the Settings tab and then Advanced. You'll likely see a tab for whatever graphics adapter you have. Click that and look for the orientation setting (portrait/landscape), which should be in there. Another approach is to right-click on an empty spot on the desktop and you should see a context menu like this:
