Sometimes, it accidentally might happen that due pressing the wrong set of keys your computer screen rotates to portrait mode. The correct position of your computer is the landscape mode where you are able to see the screen in front of you with Windows key on the bottom right. And in portrait mode, the screen is tilted towards the left and unless you tilt sideways you won’t be able to see the screen correctly. There is also Landscape-flipped mode in which your screen is upside down.
Here we have enlisted some methods through which you can get your screen back in the right position. When your screen gets rotated it doesn’t mean that the computer has got some problem. It is just a change in the display settings that has been executed from certain shortcuts or by accidentally pressing some keys.
Through the same keys you’ll be able to rotate your screen to the landscape position. Here is what you need to do. It is the shortest and simplest method of all. You need to press CTRL+ALT+Up Arrow. This should bring back your computer screen to the landscape position.
However, if this doesn’t work then you need to do it manually. This only works for Windows 7, 8 and 10. Here are the steps:
- Right click on desktop and then click on display settings
- In settings, you will find ‘scale and layout’. The third option would be ‘Orientation. Click on that.
- You would see the option of Landscape, Landscape(flipped) and portrait (flipped). Click on Landscape and that would bring your computer screen back to normal.
The shortcut to portrait and landscape flipped is CTRL+ALT+Left Arrow/Down Arrow respectively. Also, for other computers that might have a discreet graphic card in them there is another alternative. Right click>Graphic options>Rotation>Rotate to normal. We are sure if not one, then the other would definitely work. We hope this helps you guys to fix your problem. That’s about it.
