Look the 15 mo old in the eye, and say "please put it back the way it was".

Maybe with some Bill Cosby emphasis in your tone of voice. ;D

Some combination of alt-shift-and/or-ctrl plus an arrow key will flip it. I can't remember it at the moment.

Now if you want a good practical joke...

Take a screen capture of their desktop, and save it as a .bmp.

Set that as their desktop wallpaper.

Then put the taskbar on 'autohide', and move all the real Icons to the 'unused' folder.

Now the screen looks normal, but nothing clicks  ;)

If they can find their way out of that, then it's registry hacks... black Icons with black text, on a black wallpaper, with all the highlights in black.

Here are all the originals.  IMO, they were by far the best:

Iím a problem solver. 

Just turn the laptop 90 on its side and then the screen would look right.  ĎCorse, itíll be a little hard to type with the keyboard going up and down.   smiley_idea

Moving the mouse around was a little tricky also up was down and right was left. Had me scared for a moment.
