My angel pressed some thing and after that the Windows screen has rotated. It has become vertical. I have restarted but still shows the same.

How to resolve this issue ?

You own an angel?? :) – Traveling Tech Guy Oct 15 '10 at 23:09
Just to be sure (as I've never seen rotating the display having this effect on the Windows task bar): you are referring to the whole screen, not just the task bar, right? – Arjan Oct 16 '10 at 15:57

This is a function of your video card drivers. Typically, the way to fix this is to go into the video card control center. For AMD (ATI) cards, this is typically the Catalyst Control Center, for NVidia, it's the NVIDIA Control Panel. I don't know what the name is for Intel. In any case, you're looking for an option like "Rotate Desktop" or "Rotate Display". Set it back to 0 degrees or landscape mode, and you should be fine.

This is specific to those who have Intel IGPs. – Sathya Oct 16 '10 at 4:42
@Sathya is correct, this only works with Intel.... – studiohack Oct 17 '10 at 18:11
