Can I swivel monitor & view portrait?

\015 Can I mount a widescreen monitor 90 degrees and view files portrait?\015

Answers :

Hi There,
\015\012on most monitors, no you cannot view the screen on portrait.
\015\012There are some larger, wide screen monitors that I have seen that allow you to twist and see the screen and picture vertical.
\015\012You have to get a monitor specifically to do this in the specs of the monitor.
\015\012Here is a Google search on models that you can do this with.
\015\012Actually, you can do that with almost any monitor. All you need is a\015\012software or driver to rotate the contents of your screen by software.\015\012AFAIK, any reasonably new nVidia video card support this feature - see NVRotate.\015\012You probably can do the same with several other video cards, so try yo\015\012get more information about yours before you decide to buy another one\015\012just for this.
\015\012Of course, your monitor also need a stand that allows you to mount it\015\012in portrait mode, or even better, one that lets you change it to\015\012portrait or landscape modes. Once a rarity, this seems to be easier to\015\012find these days. Check out this Google search to find some products.
