screen rotation not wanted

Hi, it seems all DELL machines use CNTL+ALT+(arrow keys) to rotate the screen, But I have applications that use that key combination so my question is how can I turn this 'feature' off and pass that combination to the applications...

Thanks

Re: screen rotation not wanted

This is a DELL Inspiron 17R 5720 and thank you, your steps were followed and a was able to disable the hot keys, as your suggested. The key combination is also being passed to the application.  Again Thanks...

BTW, is there really a need for this screen rotation, Dell is ONLY machine that does this.

Hi frankwal,

Thank you for your reply and I am glad to know that the issue has been resolved. The screen rotation feature is a default option provided in the graphics card application and it can also be disabled.
