Technology Tip Number 5
Flip Your Screen!

Hereís something I learned from a 7th grader:

Directions:  Read everything before you do anything

  1. Press CTRL + ALT + the up arrow key (see below)

  2. Next press CTRL + ALT + the right arrow key

  3. Then press CTRL + ALT + the left arrow key

  4. Then, before you get too dizzy press CTRL + ALT + the down arrow key

Pretty neat???

Now remember that a 7th grader showed me that after I had spent 5 minutes trying to fix a monitor that was set upside down by another student.  You will inevitably find that often the kids are ahead of the adults when it comes to computers.  Itís OK, thatís just the way it is. 

At least you know how to flip your screen back if anyone messes with it.

And if this activity didn't work on your computer it just means you might have a different version of Windows (other than XP) or this particular feature may have been disabled.  But if you ever see an upside down screen you'll know what to do.
