I know this would be comletely pointless....but also so much fun at the same time. there could just be a third button at the top right that you could use to rotate the window.

       Do you mean rotate in three dimensions?

       Years ago, there was a shareware program that would make everything on the computer screen a mirror-image until the correct key combinations were pressed. A hearty laugh for everyone, except the person who was trying to work on the computer.

       Yes, please clarify what you mean by rotate.

       i meant fourth button.....but when i say rotate i mean 360degrees clockwise or counter-clockwise....although it may be cool to be able to rotate it on all 3 dimensions

       My screen rotates 90 degrees...
I have a laptop.

       Kind of like this? [link]

       I was thinking maybe the windows would rotate like a really overdone flash site's graphics. Say, whatever happened to that really touchy, self-proclaimed wünderchild, ol' what's-his-name, Nick-something, anyway?

       This could be a neat other option -- besides "cascade" and "tile" -- that lets you have access to more than one window on the screen at a time. It would be called "Star".

       Every time I click my mouse, the whole screen rotates 360 degrees. Strange thing is, it looks the same as it did before.

       nView has a feature that rotates the entire screen through right angles...?

       ceder park's link doesnt work anymore...
I think tweakwindows (dont have time to google for it) has this feature.
