If you go into the control panel on Vista I think there is a "tablet PC" section. You should be able to find a setting here to switch it back to normal. Sorry I can't be more specific, I only have access to a Vista PC at work.
I love this stupid game!

Hi Dave,

First, go back to using one finger at a time when you type.

Orientation is a function of the display driver.  Try to access it through the Control Panel by selecting Mobile PC or review the options available in Display properties by right clicking on the desktop.

you may also try CTRL+ALT+Up Arrow keys, or possibly press the Windows key and the X key.
