How to Flip a Computer Screen
Level of difficulty:
Flipping computer screens is a useful way to instantly view graphics from a different angle. It is used in instances when the monitor's orientation would be more visible at a different degree. Rotating orientation is absolutely safe to display. Knowing this skill is useful when the display is mounted at awkward angles.
- A desktop or laptop computer with Intel chipset and video driver
- Windows platform installed on the computer
Turn on your computer and wait for the Windows platform to load.
Right-click on the desktop portion with fewer icons. On the pop-up menu that will appear, click on 'properties'. Another pop-up screen containing different tabbed items will show on your display. Select the 'settings' tab and then look for the button marked 'advanced'. Go to 'Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver' and then proceed to 'Graphic properties'. Select 'rotation' and choose 'enable rotation'. Click on 'apply' first, and then click on 'OK'.
This will bring you back to the desktop. Hold the Alt key (usually positioned to the right or the left of the space bar) and then the Ctrl key (found below the shift keys) and press the right arrow key. This will flip your display to the right (90 degrees).
Hold the Alt key, Ctrl key, and press the down arrow key to turn the display upside down (180 degrees).
Hold the Alt key, Ctrl key, and press the left arrow key to shift the display to the left (270 degrees).
Hold the Alt key, Ctrl key, and press the up arrow key to return the display to default, right-side-up setting (0 degree).
Simply hold the Alt key, Ctrl key, and press the up arrow key to return the display to default, right-side-up setting (0 degree). Changing back the display will bring it back to its original settings.
You can also manually configure the display settings by using the buttons of your monitor. Otherwise, you can identify video cards compatible with your system and hardware components with embedded features that can be used to flip the screen in a wide variety of ways.
