Hi again, Barbara. Since ALT plus CONTROL plus Up Arrow is not a toggle command, it should always turn your screen right side up. If the screen is already right side up, ALT plus CONTROL plus Up Arrow won't change your screen at all.
Thanks – I always forget about the pass through keystroke
I did it and now will have the next person who walks in my door look at it and see if I am still sideways!
Hi, Barbara. Before attempting to press ALT plus CONTROL plus Up Arrow, try pressing the "passthrough" command in JAWS, which is JAWS key plus three on the numbers row, not the NumPad. Then after pressing the passthrough command, then try ALT plus CONTROL plus Up Arrow, and see if your screen rotates right-side up.
Periodically I mistakenly hit some combination of keystrokes that turns my screen sideways (landscape). When I searched for keystroke to change it to portrait, what I got was alt-ctrl-arrow – but the problem is that is a JAWS command for tables and when I do it, JAWS keeps telling me that I am not in a table (which I obviously know.
Any suggestions? Having a sideways screen is a problem when I am on a Zoom and also when I ask someone to help me with something on my computer.
