Where is NVRotate? How do I run it in WinXP?? And can I set up an icon to run it easily from QuickLaunch?

I'm a bit frustrutated by this, because I've now had this experience about 3 or 4 times over where I've wanted to rotate by monitors (Syncmaster 204b's) on my GeForce 7600 GTS...but I can never find the darn gizmo to actually rotate the monitors. Ugh.

The best thing I've found in the forums thus far is:

...but that seems to be an obsolete reference.

Help?

It should appear as an option in the NVIDIA Control Panel.

Right click on the desktop and select NVIDIA Control Panel in the pop-up menu.

MikeC's method is good enough if you use it quite rarely. There is no need to configure anything for that to work.

I use "NVIDIA nView Desktop Manager" that hopefully is installed with the drivers. That should be found from the Windows Control Panel.

When you go through those settings, you can toggle that 90 degree rotation on and off with the quick keys you selected. I use ctr+alt+p myself as seen in the pictures above.

Hope that helps.
