computer stuck on portrait

In have an ancient pc - my mac has died. Perhaps it was my cat, but my computer is stuck on portrait - as if it were a tablet or phone, and I can't switch it back. I have followed the directions incicated online,  but nothing happened, and of course I have a rush job to do. Help!!!!!

What's the model number of your computer? Maybe for starters, try going to your desktop, pick an empty space, right-click there with your mouse, see if there's a "display" entry in the menu which hopefully appears, and then tell us what choices there are in that menu? I'm just scrambling here.

Did you try what I suggested?

Yes, and some variants. It finally worked. So I can turn in (early) and finish my job tomorrow morning and buy myself a decent (second-hand) computer.

Thanks to all!

It's so rare and wonderful that we get to talk about something that ends well on this board.  Congratulations!

Typical Liberal propagandist, coming in to troll a serious discussion between progressive participants...

Oops - yes, agreed!
