My cat jumped up on the keyboard and the screen rotated, how do I correct this?

Posted

My cat jumped up on my keyboard and the screen rotated. I've searched but I can't find out to undo this so the screen is in the normal position again.

Hi dscamp,

I don't think this is a Firefox issue, but the keyboard shortcut is Ctrl+Alt+[Arrow Key]. Ctrl+Alt+Up should put your monitor back in the proper orientation.

Hopefully this helps!

Thank you sooooo much. It works!!! I had thought I was doomed forever to a sideways screen.  ;o) I must have inadvertently hit an arrow key whilst performing CTRL+ALT+DEL. Much appreciated.
