Screen rotation in Windows 7


I learned a new trick today that I want to pass along.  Have you ever had some joker in the office mess with your machine when you’ve stepped away without locking your system?  One of the worst is when someone goes into the video settings and rotates your screen 90 degrees.  You could either rotate your head or turn your mouse sideways or maybe even physically rotate your screen so you can set it back to normal.  But there is an easier way with a keyboard shortcut.  Simply hold down Ctrl and Alt and then push the UP arrow key.  The other arrow keys will rotate your screen left, right, or upside down.  This should stop the joker from pulling this prank.  Better yet, if you have an office joker and he leaves his machine unlocked, just walk by and give him a quick Crtl, Alt arrow of your choice.  Just beware the repercussions, and always use the Windows Key + L when you step away from your computer.
