HELP! My computer display is upside down!!

I don't know what I did. I leaned over my laptop to pick something off the floor. Must've brushed against the keyboard and now my display is upside down. I've rebooted and restarted thinking that would correct it, but it didn't. Does anyone know what I can do to get it back right side up?

Of course, but YOU try typing upside down. It's making me crazy.

I am glad because my next suggestion was to stand on your head

Not pretty. Standing on my head is not one of my best tricks. I do well enough to stand on two feet some days.

Very interesting! Now is there a 'cheat sheet' that explains what all the control / alt / whatever actually mean?

Good point, Luvs. I'd definitely be interested in seeing something like that.

Hey! I've been holding control + alt and the down arrow, but my display won't turn over! Is my computer broken?
