    Upside down screen


    Hi Terry

    Not sure about the mouse but my works PC allowed screen to be moved around. It had a button on the front of the PC that operated this function.

    I think the above should do it, if not you might try this:

    (1) Right-click on your desktop and click on "Properties".
    (2) Go to "Settings" tab.
    (3) Click on "Advanced".
    (4) Go to the "Rotation" tab.
    (5) Click on "Standard Landscape (0°)".
    (6) Click "Save".

    It don't work Jim :BigGrin: but if you take keyboard to bits -upside down- and clean circuit board with glass cleaner that works :thumb: just remember to turn puter off first :Smile:
    Now going to play with settings etc, to remember all the stuff I used to know how to do and have forgotten-then again it's all doing what I want it to so may well leave alone and ask for advice again next time :Wink:
    Can anyone advise me how to turn this sites spellchecker on ? used to have it but I think it disapeared with a firefox update :Doh:Firefox says it is on BUT :BigGrin:
