Just by way of FYI, students love to flip their teachers’ monitor displays. I can’t begin to tell you how many screens I have had to re-orient over the course of my computer support career.


So, if you do have any pranksters in your class, at least now you know how to re-set your monitor display back to normal.


Finally, if the above procedure did not work on your computer, it likely means that you have a version of Windows that doesn’t support those key strokes or that the key-combo has been disabled. In those cases, please give either me or Ms. Zaccardi a call and we will come to the rescue.
