Screen Position Changing

Dear Friends,

I need some help and am not sure where to look. Here's the annoyance I have somehow created . . . I've gotten used to using CTRL-> (right or left arrow) to move around one word at a time in a document or email. Somehow I've managed to change a setting so that my computer is now turning the display sideways on my screen when I hit CTRL-> (right or left arrow). Anyone know what I did, and how to undo it? I have figured out that I need to hit CTRL-^ (up arrow) to get the screen back into its proper position, but would really like my shortcut back so that I'll quit turning my screen all the time. Thanks in advance!
Rick

Did you change or update your video drivers, or were you fiddling with your display settings?
Take a look in Control Panel - Display - Settings - Advanced . Somewhere in there is probably a feature whereby you can rotate your display 90 or 180 degrees using hotkey combos - turn off the feature, or change the hot key designations.
If there isn't anything there, look at other places to do with your video.

You may have made a change in the handicap Icon in the control panel.

I've had 2 emachines and both computers controled this feature differently.
(screen rotation)
I was able to access this feature by clicking on my empty desktop screen.
On the first one after right clicking I went to Grapics.

On the computer I now have - Right click the empty desktop and go to NVIDIA and over to
17f2 - After clicking 17f2 I have the option to use NV Rotate (screen rotate)
You will just have to search until you find how this change is made on your computer.

Thanks tubesandwires and cboy. On my computer the option was on graphics properties, after I right-clicked on the empty desktop. I turned of the option to rotate the screen and life is good again. :-) I TRULY appreciate your help.
