Do you want to rotate the entire screen or just like a window or
canvas? I'm not sure if it is possible in .NET but in Win32 you can
get what is called a global handle to device which allows you to paint
on other Window's display area.

I think it is possible because there are those magnifier programs.
I'd look into GDI+ as well.

1. Lift monitor
2. Turn 1/4 of a turn in either direction
3. Drop monitor
Sorry.. couldnt help myself ;-)

I am not sure if you can do this in .NET either.. There may be a way to do
it via your video setup in windows though? I believe some have the ability
to support that type of behavior.

Jor,

Rotate the screen or rotate a picture of the screen?

If you are just trying to rotate a picture, google on screen capture (there
are lots of hits on it) and then take a look at the static method
Graphics.FromImage and the instance methods RotateTransform() and
ResetTransform() of the Graphics class.
