Only happened once on my desktop and that was five years ago or so.

Rose,

On some laptops (Dell, for example) there is a keystroke that will do this.
It is the same keystroke as used for reading rows and columns in tables. You
need to go to the graphics properties and disable the hotkey for allowing
the rotation. I'll see if I can dig up the notes I have.

Well I once somehow rotated my screen to upside down and would never have
known had I not needed my husband to do something I could not do and we
never figured out what I did to turn it all upside down.

It's been my experience that JAWS will speak, and often some items are cut
off or not spoken due to the orientation. I recall that edit fields do not
speak.

In my experience, when the screen is rotated, JAWS won't speak anything on
the screen.

I would have thought in that case that the text itself would undergo
odd rotation, though I suppose that might not be apparent with jaws,
and from the description I have no idea whether someone who can see
has looked at this.

Soronel,

How about possible rotation of the screen? If it's a laptop, the screen
can

be rotated in 90-degree increments.

Are you sure that this is actually an auto arrangement and not some
joke that is being played on her? Right click the desktop and then
underview make sure that auto arrange is selected.

If not that I would make sure that she has not selected some right to
left locale (even with RTL if the text is in a script that windows
recognizes as LTR it will get displayed correctly, just not
necessarily where one would expect).

My friend is having a strange problem with her Windows XP and JAWS. Here
are
the symptoms.

The icons on the desktop are arranged in alphabetic order as they should
be
except that the My Documents icon is in the righthand most column in the
top
right hand corner, and the other icons are in columns going to the left
instead of the normal way where the My Documents icon is at the top left
and
the last icon is at the bottom of the right hand column.

Does anyone know why this is, and how to correct it so the icons revert
back
to a left to righthand column order again?

Thank you.
