    Hi all! I use a laptop with Vista and like to rotate my desktop by 90 degrees so I can read manga/comics as a full page, but I noticed that the trackpad still stays the same, making it very hard to move the mouse about. Does anyone know how to rotate the trackpad too so that my life is a bit easier?

    You can try this: http://vk.edward.li.googlepages.com/eeerotate

    A tiny program to rotate your screen and touchpad at the same time. Especially designed for EeePC but should work with all computers.

    Ctrl+Alt+Right: rotate screen and touchpad by 270 degrees
    Ctrl+Alt+Up: back to normal

    Awesome, thanks a lot! The Sakasa mouse program that's on that page was exactly what I wanted (it defaults to reversing the mouse, but you can also set it to rotate!).

    I have one question, after you have the full page, do you have to tilt the laptop 90 degrees as well?

    I find that on the AspireOne the software doesn't rotate the touchpad when using alt-shift-left or alt-shift-down -- Does anyone know a fix?
