    Windows Upside Down.

    The 411. A secretary here just dropped some paper on a screen here and now the screen is upside down.

    Wierd. Its not a virus or anything its a key combination. How did she do this and how do I get it back ?

    Do you have a screen shot?? I'm assuming that it's not simply the taskbar being moved but characters being upside down?

    Ctrl-Alt-down" inverts the display, and "Ctrl-Alt-up" puts it back to normal

    Does not seem to work on Win98SE either, never knew about a key combination to do this, always assumed the only way was useing GDI32.DLL services

    Yup, I'd be curious to know the OS this happened on. I've tried it on 98SE and W2K SP4 but it doesn't work on either of those....

    That CTRL ALT Up and down did not work for me eithier on a Win2k SP4 Box.

    If someone came to me with that problem, I would of thought they were messing with me and told them to turn the monitor on its top. What is the point of being able to turn your display upside down? What would you use that for? Why would it be included with Windows?
