I loaned my laptop to my wife and somehow she rotated the display by 90 deg. How to I get it back to zero?

Can someone also tell me why there is this feature, Using it like this will surely result in a sore neck!
Maybe it is for folk that want to use their Laptop while lying in bed ? ;)

Cheers
Ken

Try a CTRL + ALT + Up Arrow three key combination press.

Maybe she was reading an e-book and was holding your laptop like a book. LoL

It's also handy for external displays that are connected to the laptop. Various pages and office program, as well as the previously mentioned eBooks, take advantage of landscape orientation screens.

It's quite easy to hit those keys by accident at the same time.
