Welcome to the forums.

You discovered the default Intel screen rotation shortcuts. Ctrl+Alt+Arrow Key.They're great fun on display models in stores

probably not, most are in pdf format which can be read with Adobe Reader, which is a free app, just google it (it might be on your system already), as far as books goes there are many free sites available through google also..
