How to Keystroke to Rotate Screen

If you have a Windows computer, this emindsca will show you how to rotate the screen orientation using only your keyboard. Laptops with integrated Intel HD graphics may come equipped with a built-in feature that allows you to rotate the screen by pressing a few simple keyboard shortcuts. For everyone else, there is a convenient and lightweight programme called iRotate that will provide you with the same functionality as the above mentioned programmes.

Method 1 On Computers with Intel HD Graphics

1. Press Ctrl+Alt + the arrow keys. Hold the Ctrl and Alt keys and press one of the four arrow keys to reorientate the top of the display in that direction.

Press Ctrl+Alt+→ to rotate 90 degrees right.

Press Ctrl+Alt+← to rotate 90 degrees left.

Press Ctrl+Alt+↓ to flip upside down.

Press Ctrl+Alt+↑ for normal landscape view.

Method 2 Using the iRotate App

1. Go to the iRotate download page in a web browser.

2. Click Download iRotate. It’s on the top-left side of the page. This will start downloading the iRotate installer file.

3. Double-click the “irotate.exe” file to open it. By default, you can find downloaded files in your “Downloads” folder.

4. Click YES. This grants Windows permission to run the file and opens the iRotate installer.

5. Check the box for “I agree with the above terms and conditions” and then click Next.

6. Click Start to start the installation. Alternatively, you can select a different installation directory by clicking on the “Destination Directory” button, but the default location should be satisfactory.

7. Click OK twice. The default settings are for the programme to run immediately after installation and for a shortcut to be displayed in the system tray.

The iRotate icon should be visible in the system tray, which is located on the right-hand side of the taskbar. It has the appearance of a blue computer monitor that has been tilted.

8. Use the keyboard shortcuts to rotate your desktop display.

Press Ctrl+Alt+→ to rotate 90 degrees right.

Press Ctrl+Alt+← to rotate 90 degrees left.

Press Ctrl+Alt+↓ to flip upside down.

Press Ctrl+Alt+↑ for normal landscape view
