    Re: Screen has rotated upside down in Windows 8

    No, it’s not a bug in Windows 8 the issue might rise up if there is some problem with the Graphics drivers. Now to resolve this problem just try to follow the below mentioned points,

    -> First thing which you need to do is to press Ctrl + Alt + Up which will rotate the screen to the default position.

    -> Now try to update the Graphics driver which you have in your Windows 8.

    -> Restart your PC once when you face this issue again and then start working with your Windows 8.

    -> If the issue comes again and again then you can do a refresh option which is available new in Windows 8 to reset all the settings to default.

    Re: Screen has rotated upside down in Windows 8

    Hiii

    this is not any sort of error
    rather it a great feature of "intel media graphics driver accelerator"

    so to come back to normal press "Ctrl"+"Alt"+"up arrow"

    similarly you can change the view of your screen to any side as
    For left-"Ctrl"+"Alt"+"left arrow"
    For right-"Ctrl"+"Alt"+"right side"
    For down-"Ctrl"+"Alt"+"down arrow"
