The Easy Scroll Office

We appreciate an office where tweaks have been made specifically to fit the user's workflow. What do many of us spend a lot of time doing? Scrolling through web pages and documents. What cuts down on scrolling? A portrait-oriented screen.

Lifehacker reader Kal El wanted to recoup some of the time wasted scrolling in documents. He flipped his displays to portrait-orientation and, at the cost of some of the menubar space, he decreased the amount of time spent scrolling and increased his reading comfort. Check out more pictures of his workspace at the link below.

    That is pretty interesting. How could I achieve this?

    I have a laptop with x64 Windows 7 and an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330 connected to an external display via DVI. I want to flip the external screen only.

      This is easily achieved, with the external monitor connected, right-click on your desktop, go to Screen Resolution.

      Here you can select each monitor individually, so select your second external monitor and change the Orientation from Landscape to Portrait.
      Obviously then you just have to physically orientate your monitor into portrait.

      Happy Scrolling!

        Wow, I cannot believe I missed that! So stupid!

        Thanks for your help!

    @Jason, the link to the flickr photo pool has an 'f' before the http://..., thus causing an error

      D'oh, so it does! Sorry about that, fixed now.
