I must confess, this is not the most common problem you will face while using your computer, but it is definitely one of those problems that send you into a frenzied state of panic.

A quick fix will be to consult your favorite computer guy to fix it. This will probably cost some money.

A more direct option will be to relax and figure it out yourself. And I promise you, this is one of those problems that do not need a need to fix.

So if this has just happened to you and you have stumbled on this article, take a deep breath and try these simple fixes for Windows 10 upside down screen.

Use keyboard shortcuts to Fix Your upside down Screen

This is a very simple fix. Use a couple of keyboard shortcuts. Ctrl + Alt + Up should return your display to normal. Ctrl + Alt + Down returns the problem, so I reckon you should not try that. Using Ctrl + Alt + Right and Ctrl + Alt + Left  take your screen to portrait display.

Note that this method will not work if you have multiple screens. For multiple screens, you will have to use the display settings as explained next.
