My display screen is sideways. How do I rotate it back?cc=US

My husband has used a shortcut key or something that has rotated my display.  It is now sideways.  I have tried shutting down the computer, but that didn't fix it.

Hi,

 

If you're using Windows XP, hold down the ctrl and alt keys and press the up arrow.

 

Regards,

Re: My display screen is sideways. How do I rotate it back?cc=US

My Windows8 screen on my Lenovo laptop flipped sideways when I was wiping off the keyboard, and I can't get it back to normal. The control/alt/up arrow key did not work for me. What to do? Help!
