Introduction:

Are you asking the question of how to turn your computer screen around? Don’t worry you’re at the right place because in this article we explain how you can rotate the screen both physically and using Windows software. Why would you want to turn your computer screen around though? There are a load of benefits to being able to turn your screen around such as benefits for gaming by playing music or discord on the screen or even just being able to fit more into a smaller office space.

How do you turn your computer screen around? (Physically) 

To physically turn your computer screen around you may need certain equipment as now all screens will rotate. It will all depend on what screen you have as to whether or not your screen was actually designed to rotate but fortunately, we have a solution. First, you will want to see whether or not you can take the stand off the back of your monitor and check whether it has a feature that allows you to rotate the screen and attach it at an angle. If your screen doesn’t then you can purchase a product such as a Monitor swing arm which either attaches to the wall or a desk. This is one of the best options as you can move the arm to whatever angle best suits you which will help with your posture but the downside may be having to install it.

How do I rotate my computer screen? (Software) 

If you don’t want to physically rotate your screen and you’ve somehow rotated the screen through the software then follow the easy steps below to get your screen back to the right angle and landscape!

 

Step 1: Go to your main desktop so that it shows no other images, like the one below

Step 3: On the screen, it will currently say “Landscape” or Portrait”. Click the drop-down and make sure it’s set to “Landscape” and press “keep changes”.

Your screen should now be back to Landscape but what if that didn’t work? The next way to reset your screen is to try press “CTRL + ALT + UP Arrow” on your keyboard. If that still doesn’t work you may want to try restarting your machine or if not go to an IT Professional as it may be graphic driver related.
