Computer screen upside down

I am on my computer and hit the keyboard by accident and now everything on the screen is upside down. What did I do wrong and how do I correct it? thanks

Lol, we used to do this to each other in the office.
That and switching someone's mouse to left handed were a couple of my favorite tricks.
Or putting a piece of Scotch tape over the optical beam on the bottom of a mouse.

The other night while playing a game, the adhesive on one of the 4 gliding pads on my mouse failed and so the pad fell off, and then as I moused over it, it went straight up into the groove for the optical sensor. I couldn't figure out why my mouse stopped responding, tried unplugging and replugging it, and then finally turned it over and had to dig out the pad with a pen.

Sounds like the Intel Graphics Hot Keys... Those can be disabled from the Intel Graphics control panel.
