How to Change Desktop Computer Screen View from Horizontal to Vertical and Reverse

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Everyday Tech

Today, while I’m trying to change batteries for my wireless keyboard, somehow I accident hit some keys which I have no idea which ones are they, my computer screen changed the screen view completely.  I had to bend my head to see whatever on the screen.  I tried many ways to change it back to the normal, but didn’t work out.  I used my computer mouse to change it, it didn’t work then I hit hit hit all keystrokes (each at a time) on the keyboard to change it back but it was useless; I tried tried tried again again again then again again and then again by touchscreen but it was the same.  Luckily, my computer is touchscreen so it’s easy for me to do than non-touchscreen.  Finally, I used Search in the computer looking for the answer by typing “horizontal” then the system suggested “horizontal screen” then “horizontal screen view”.  Finally, I picked “horizontal screen view” and press “ENTER” key or hit a magnified glass to search.  I got many tips from people around the net, I picked the first one which pop up after I hitting Search.  At there I picked the first tip and it worked great.  The solution to change my computer screen back to the normal was pressing and holding keystrokes CTRL and ALT at the same time then pressing an Up Arrow Key.  That’s it.  The screen is back.  Now if you feel bored or want to have some fun, you can do it by switching back and forth (I mean horizontal to vertical or vertical to horizontal).  My first try worked well so I stopped to try other tips, but if this tip doesn’t work with you, you can try other tips.  I’ll sum up all tips I’ve known in the following section so it’s easy for you to narrow down.

Okay, to change your computer screen view back and forth – vertical screen to horizontal screen or horizontal screen back to vertical screen, here is what you need to do.  Just one of them, if it doesn’t work, then try next one.

Press CTRL + ALT + Up Arrow Key

or

Press CTRL + ALT + one of other Arrow Keys

or

Right click on the desktop
Go to Graphic Options -> Rotation -> Normal 
My computer is a little bit difference. It doesn’t have “Normal”, instead, it has 4 other options – “Rotate to 0 Degrees”, “Rotate to 90 Degrees”, “Rotate to 180 Degrees” and “Rotate to 270 Degrees”.  My normal screen should be “Rotate to 0 Degrees”.

or

Click Start -> Control Panel -> Click Display -> Click Adjust Resolution -> Orientation – Dropdown menu -> Select Landscape – Press OK
At this choice, my computer kinds a difference. I have a choice without going “Start” button by using a touch screen – open it from the right side of the screen. I choose “Control Panel” then glance over to where it says “Appearance and Personalization”. At here, I select “Adjust screen resolution”. Now the screen open, look over at “Orientation”, use the drop down arrow to change it back to the landscape view (“Landscape” and then press “OK”). That’s it. The “Orientation” of my computer has 4 options – “Landscape”, “Portrait”, “Landscape (flipped)”, “Portrait (flipped)”.

I don’t know your computer, mine is All-in-One Desktop and window 8 and yours might be difference little bit from mine.

If I have other solutions, I’ll add them here as soon as possible.  If you’ve some cool solution(s), you can share with us in the comment section.

How to Get a Screenshot What You Did?

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Everyday Tech

As all of you heard I mentioned about a screenshot in previous post which was about $200 cash bonus of Wells Fargo Cash Wise card.  In this post, I’ll explain how you can get it without spending any penny.  The tool is right there, not far from you, it’s right in front of your face.  I believe every computer/laptop already has this tool; I’m not sure about iPhone, iPad or smart phones because I don’t own these equipment and have never used them, so I have no idea.  Up to this point, some of you will stop and think that “it’s weird,” “today,” “blogger,” “internet wee weee?,” “no iPad,” “no iPad is exception,” “how about iPhone?” “NONE,” “no smart phone neither?” “OHHHHhhhh, super weird.”  But anyway, let’s me go back about the subject I want to tell today.  One day, if I have time, I’ll tell you why I don’t own those technology.

To get a screenshot of anything in your computer screen, it’s not difficult and is very easy.  I think all of us just don’t know where is the main key located.  The following steps are what you need to do.

  • Decide what screen you want to get a screenshot.
  • Stay at that screen, don’t go anywhere.
  • Scan over your computer keyboard.
  • Locate a button/key which is labeled as Fn.  I’m using a All-in-One desktop now, so my keyboard shows the button Fn is in light blue color and is located next to the button Ctrl and Window.
  • Locate a button which is labeled as Ins.  Underneath of the word Ins on Ins button, you’ll see the word PrtSc.  Once again, my keyboard shows this button is in white color and PrtSc is in light blue color.
  • Now, you need to press on the button Fn and hold there, don’t release, and then press the button Ins which is also labeled as PrtSc.  That’s it.  You got a copy of the screen.
  • Next, you need to save it.  To save it, just open Paint application and paste it over.  Then, you’ll see a copy of the screen you want to have.  Now, you can save it.

See, how easy it is?  Now, you know how to do it; you can screenshot anything you want or you think it is important at anytime without spending any money.

See you next post.  Don’t forget come back often for more tips and tricks.  I’m trying adding at least an article a day.  Let’s see can I make it.

As everyone of us knows that we don’t have to pay any dime purchasing/using Windows 10 operating system; however, in return, we see ads appearing along with us when using the computer.  That’s how the way it’s supported in order for a business to survive, but sometimes, these ads might border us and we just want to get rid of them.  If you want to disable ads but don’t know how to do, then the following instructions will walk you through step-by-step to there.

To remove Windows 10’s lock screen ads,

  1. click on your Start menu
  2. open the Settings app
  3. choose the Personalization setting
  4. navigate to the Lock Screen tab

Ads appear on our computer screens might help us.  Why I said that?  Ads might keep us away from boring; every page is turned, then there new ads appear, that means there are new things introduce to us; we’re getting more knowledge about other stuffs or things around us…  I only turn off ads when I do something seriously or something with my personal information like banking, job applying, purchasing… where I don’t want others sneak out my bank accounts/credit card numbers…
