Thanks Sean,

That will save embarrassment, because, obviously, you don't know that it's
happened until a sighted person tells you the screen is flipped. Hot keys
are disabled now. Will they be entitled to PIP? (smile)

Hi,
Also worth turning off the keyboard shortcuts so that you can't accidentally
flip it  again.

1. From the desktop, ensure nothing is selected by pressing CTRL+Space
(you'll have to bypass if you're using Supernova, but all other screen
readers are fine). 
2. Press your applications key or shift+f10, then cursor to  graphics
options.
3. Open that, cursor to hotkeys, and choose disable.

Should you need to rotate the screen without using the hotkeys in the
future, you can do so from this graphics options menu, where of course you
can also re-enable the shortcuts.

Hi Clive, 

Go to a list of documents, and
Press alt control up arrow all at once.
My notes tell me it works a treat.

All the best,
Steph

Hi all,

 

What is the most straight forward, least drill-down heavy way to turn a
screen back to portrate, when it's gone landscape, or has flipped through 90
degrees?

 

~Thanks,

Clive
