Re: HELP!! IVE ROTATED MY SCREEN 45 DEGREES TO THE RIGHT BY MISTAKE!!

The correct key combination to use depends on your exact type of integrated video or video card.

You could try pressing Ctrl - Alt and the up arrow key at the same time and toggle the keys again. Another possibility is to press Ctrl - Shift and R at the same time and toggle the keys again.

In my case I can right click on the desktop and choose NVIDIA Control Panel. Rotate display options are then available.

Ctrl+Alt + various arrow keys rotate the screen in different directions and orientations.
