Rotated/Flipped Screen (Intel Graphics)

Consignment Software Support

An issue we hear about quite often is, “My screen is flipped on its side!”  In a consignment or resale store, it’s not uncommon for *things* to be plopped down on the keyboard — e.g. a pile of clothes to process, a handbag, etc.

Well, one thing that’s often overlooked is, your screen can be rotated/flipped by simply pressing the CTRL + ALT keys and one of the arrow keys.  Take a look at your keyboard and notice these keys are all nestled together:

So all it takes is an item touching those at the same time and *wham*, your screen is sideways:

This feature is for situations where a screen is literally being mounted vertically — e.g. in airports, restaurants, etc.  So it has its purpose, but not in a consignment store.  🙂

One of the seemingly-small, yet effective items included in Peeps’ Configuration protocol (which goes on all of our MiniPeep computers and for any store on Peeps’ Support), is disabling the Hot Keys in the Intel Graphics Control Panel:

By doing so, we reduce the amount of issues a consignment or resale store can encounter.  🙂

Just another reason so many stores choose Peeps’ Support for complete systems management!

I am a consignment software specialist, System Administrator for hundreds of consignment workstations across North America, and developer of Peeps' Software! I've been helping consignment & resale store-owners since 2003. I started The Computer Peeps in February of 2010. After 17+ years of working with consignment stores, I understand the unique challenges consignment & resale store-owners face. From electrical issues in old building or strip malls, to advocating for them when their consignment software keeps crashing. I now manage over 600 computer systems, servers & websites for store-owners all across North America and I am the developer/programmer of Peeps' Software -- the only software written FOR consignment & resale stores specifically.
