Help please - I've got xp and I was trying to get out of a non responding download by
using alt/control/del and my desktop turned sideways on the screen and this has
happened to me before , but I can't remember how to get back to normal , plus the
taskbar is too fat and won't minimize down-any help appreciated.......thanks

Usually, the way to get it back to normal is to press Ctrl+Alt+Up button (usually associated with video card software).

Just to note: Ctrl+Alt+Down button will flip it upside-down, Ctrl+Alt+Left button will rotate it anti-clockwise, and Ctrl+Alt+Right button will rotate it clockwise.

If it doesn't work, let us know.

It's not a trick everybody knows. But it is fun to play with once you do know it (especially with other people who don't know it...).

Gotta have some fun in your life...:cool:
