My System

Inverted monitor display

My son just phoned me to say that his very young son must have done something to his PC as the display on the monitor was INVERTED.
I explained how to use System Restore and restored the display problem.
My question is -
How do you cause the monitor display to be inverted? Before I suggested to my son to use system restore I firstly looked at Display Properties but could not see anything there.
Just curious

Many display adapters (and driver software) have a screen rotation feature. This usually is in demand by notebook users, but not exclusively.

The primary reason for this? to use with overhead projection devices and LCD projectors.

There should be a keyboard sequence to rotate the display 90 degrees at a time. For my desktop it is Alt+Ctrl+left or right arrow keys.
