Greetings Joe,

Unfortunately that particular feature is something added on by display drivers or other
third-party software and isn't standardized in Windows. As such, you'll have to poke around
to find the exact option.

Try Alt or Control and one of the arrow keys on your computer.

Otherwise, you'll have to dig through the Display Control Panel to find the
option to disable the screen rotation.

Right-click an empty spot on your desktop and select Personalise. Look to
see if you have your Graphics Card settings there. Somewhere in those
will be the rotate display settings.
