How to rotate screen using keyboard shortcut

Alternatively, if your tablet, laptop, or desktop supports it, you can also use keyboard shortcuts to rotate the screen on Windows 10:

Important: This option may only work with some graphics cards. If it’s not working for you, then use the Settings app option.

  • Ctrl + Alt + Up arrow – rotates to landscape mode.
  • Ctrl + Alt + Down arrow – rotates the screen upside down.
  • Ctrl + Alt + Right arrow – rotates the screen 90 degrees (right).
  • Ctrl + Alt + Left arrow – rotates the screen 90 degrees (left).

To return to the normal orientation, use the “Ctrl + Alt + Up arrow” keyboard shortcut.

How to rotate screen using graphics control panel

Whether you use a graphics card from Intel, NVIDIA, or AMD, each vendor offers a control panel software to control various aspects of the video settings, including an option to rotate the screen.

To rotate the screen using the NVIDIA Control Panel, use these steps:

  • Open Control Panel.
  • Click on Hardware and Sound.
  • Click on NVIDIA Control Panel.
  • Click on Rotate display under the “Display” section.
  • Select the display (if applicable).
  • Choose the orientation (or use the controls on the right).

  • Click the Apply button.
  • Rotate the monitor as needed to the orientation you selected.

Once you complete the steps, the screen will switch to the orientation you specified.

I’m focusing these instructions for the control panel from NVIDIA, but you can find similar options in the control panel provided by Intel and AMD.
