hello. im having trouble with my win7 pc. im usually good at fixing quite a few things, but this has me really puzzled.. the icons (minimize, maximize, and close) have all moved to the top left instead of being at the top right..i did not move any settings.. so im thinking it was probably a program i might have installed. and also the menus go from right-to-left instead of the normal left-to-right. any of you have had this problem before?

Do a system restore to a point before this happened.

 

Gad!  Now I have a crick in my neck from craning my head sideways.

Press Ctrl+Alt and an arrow key to change your screen orientation.

 

(you can also try Shift+Alt and arrow for some machines)

Me too :)

 

edward23 is on Win7 though, it's a common feature to many Windows graphics drivers.
