I just discovered that I can turn my monitor (the actual hardware) vertically but I can't figure out how to set Windows 7 in to a vertical mode too. Any ideas? The monitor is connected to a laptop although I didn't set mirror views. I'm a coder that's why I would like that option. Thanks.

You probably need to download & install the drivers for your particular monitor. My monitors automatically senses when I rotate them, then they adjust accordingly. One monitor is portrait, and the other two are landscape.

Other monitors may need you to right-click on the desktop, then change the screen orientation. You can also go into the control panel, and switch orientation that way.

Thanks for the votes! I forgot to mention. If you have more than one graphics card, then you may need to load those drivers as well. The nice thing about multiple monitors, is that you can have them act as a big desktop. I use one monitor for my email, internet browsing, etc. The other two monitors are setup for graphics & video editing.

Visit the official website of your graphics card/GPU manufacturer & look for the latest software drivers.

Also, To avoid possible complications, Uninstall the older drivers before installing the latest drivers.

Once the latest drivers are installed, Look for a monitor orientation setting within the GPU software.

you do it in the software that is associated with your graphics card/GPU.

nvidia-Ntune ATI - Catalyst Control Center

open it and there will be an option to flip display 90 degree's.

That's the problem. I have the Intel software for my graphics card/GPU but when I set it to 90^ flip it doesn't do anything.

right mouse click the desktop on that monitor and it should have a panel for graphics options, mouse over that then mouse over rotation and click whichever one suits the orientation of your monitor.
