How to Rotate the Screen in Windows 7, 8 and 10


There are a few different ways to rotate your desktop on Windows 7, 8, and 10, from using the built-in Display settings (this is what it’s called in Windows 10) to those provided by your graphics card – or even a keyboard shortcut where supported.

The first way you can try to rotate your laptop or PC screen is with a keyboard shortcut. Whether this work for you or not will depend on the hardware and software on your PC. Some software, for example Nvidia and AMD drivers, allow you to create ‘Hotkeys’ to rotate the screen using a shortcut such as Shift-Alt-Arrow keys.

However, the lack of a hotkey option could be because you don’t have the software installed. For example, Intel’s Graphics and Media Control Panel needs to be installed if you have Intel graphics.

The other method requires you to delve into the Control Panel to change orientation, which could be a pain if you rotate your monitor from landscape to portrait (and vice-versa) regularly.
