    Screen Flipped 90 deg. And Desktop Gadgets Problem, Please


    Hello,

    Always something new, I guess.

    Printed out a document which went O.K.
    When I looked back at my screen, everything on it was flipped 90 degrees !
    Finally was able to find the Display Settings, and get it back to "normal".

    a. What do you think (might have) happened ?

    b. But all my Desktop Gadgets are now gone.
    All I seem to be able to find, or get, is a msg. that comes up
    saying: Desktop Gadgets Are managed By Your System Administrator
    Huh ?

    How, please can I get them back, or pick from the normal selection again to put on my Desktop ?
    Why does this happen; not the first time (but the first time for this msg.) ?

    Much thanks, as always,
    Bob

    Are you using a 3rd party install of Desktop Gadgets? I ask because Gadgets were removed in Windows 10 because of security risk. Gadgets have been discontinued - Microsoft Windows

    From OP:


    Hi,

    Yes, I originally got them, and installed them, from "8 Gadgets"
    Worked pretty well.

    Re installed them, and all set now (I think).

    Thanks again for help,
    Bob
