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!

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

Control Panel
Display
Change Display Settings

You will see something like this:
Change Display SettingsClick the Orientation drop-down and select Landscape (it is likely Portrait now). Regards, Joe

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:

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