I think you mean the Origin, as Home can be anywhere you want.

The only thing you can do is manually rotate it 180°. You can't change the coordinate system or the way it's displayed.

Hi Gerry

  I have a turret mill i am converting , and to have the screen origin match the machine home position" Visually "  means the table of the mill would be away from me and to the right , I was just wondering if it was possible to have   my machine home position ,table forward and to the left and the screen represent that .   

Thanks Rob

As I said, all you can do is click in the window and rotate it by hand. Mach3 doesn't allow anything else.
