    It must be a feature installed optionally when you install windows.. maybe.
    Something to search for in microsoft.com?
    Did you have monitors that easily rotated there at school?

    I have seen ones that had a special mount that would allow you to quickly rotate from landscape to portrait and back. If you had one of those, you'd probably want a hotkey to switch like that.

    But if your monitor doesn't easily rotate, you wouldn't even want those hotkeys.

    Windows CE and XP embedded have that!

    I have several wireless thin clients here at work that use CE and XP embedded that will do exactly what you want. Plus XP embedded will give a really quick boot time with almost the exact same functionality as full XP.

    xp also has add on software and that might be what is running on those school pc's. Like xp plus, or tweak xp.

    No, they are 17" CRT monitors that dont have the room to flip sideways even if you wanted to.

    You could also have this feature on your LCD controller.

    There is a lot of software available to do this also. Here's one: PivotPro

    What about mirroring? In addition to rotating, are there programs that will mirror an output, say if I want to look at a monitor through my rearview mirror?

    You can use PivoPro for free but you have to live with the pop-up occassionally... I know it pops up each time you boot the computer... but from what I recall, it can also pop up during usage... I have Windows XP but the keystroke doesn't work for me either... I was going to put a 10-12" monitor in my dash in portrait mode... so I was looking at PivotPro.

    Good luck... if you find a FREE fix, let us ALL know.

    TTYL!
