Am using two monitors on my PC using the extended display in control panel. Suddenly my first monitor shows everything upside down. I found that the orientation had spontaneously changed into the landscape flipped orientation. I changed it back to landscape orientation and that solved the problem.

But I want to know what could have triggered this. I didn't do it myself.

✔ Best Answer
My guess would be you pressed Ctrl-Alt and one of the arrow keys. That would do it.

What did you change recently? Did you change a setting
in a graphics program or a multimedia program? If the
flip occurred when you re-booted, it was probably due to
something that happened before you shut down.

Oh! I didn't know (or have forgotten since I never used it myself)
that Ctrl-arrow keys would flip or rotate the screen. Is that a
Windows function or a graphics card software function?

Cannot remember having touched Ctrl-Alt at all. I was having a problem that my Chrome browser shortcut didn't work. I solved this by making a new shortcut after re-installing Chrome and adding it to the taskbar. I did nothing to my graphics card.

But I learned from the answers give. Thank you all
