Rotating a screen by mistake by clicking on a set of keys will happen to you at some time or other. Knowing how to correct this, is what this article is all about. Fortunately, there are a couple of ways to rotate the screen in Windows 10; these methods work in Windows 7, 8 and 10
Rotate a Screen with a Keyboard Shortcut
Press CTRL + ALT + Up Arrow together, and your Windows desktop should return to landscape mode. You can rotate the screen to portrait or upside-down landscape, by selecting CTRL + ALT + Left Arrow, Right Arrow or Down arrow.
Rotate Screen with Display Settings Menu
If, for some reason, the shortcut keys don’t work (and they should), try this method.
- Right-click on the desktop and select Display settings.
- Choose a screen to fix if you have multiple monitors attached. Skip this step if you have only one
- Select Landscape from the orientation menu
- Click Apply (or OK)
- Click Keep Changes when prompted
These nifty little tricks will help you rotate your screen back to the correct orientation in no time. If you have any questions, leave a note on our website, and we will get back to you.
