Computer users occasionally have a need to rotate, or "flip," a monitor display to be better able to read long documents or to view pictures. Because rotating a computer screen is such a basic function, modern operating systems (Windows XP and up) include hot keys and display options that enable the user to rotate the computer screen by 90, 180 and 270 degrees. Rotating the computer screen allows for more display options. For instance, when rotated 90 degrees, a 1680x1050 monitor becomes a 1050x1680 monitor, which provides more vertical pixels than a standard display.

Windows XP/Vista Monitor Orientation
Minimize any windows or programs to the taskbar. Click the desktop. Press "CTRL" + "ALT" at the same time. Press one of the arrow keys to flip the monitor orientation by 90, 180 or 270 degrees. The left arrow rotates the computer screen 90 degrees; the down arrow rotates the computer screen 180 degrees; the right arrow rotates the computer screen 270 degrees; the up arrow resets the monitor orientation. Rotate the computer screen in Windows Vista by opening the Control Panel, searching for "Tablet PC" and changing the "Orientation" drop box to the desired rotation. b> Windows 7 Monitor Orientation b> Click the Start menu at the lower-left hand part of the screen, and open the Control Panel. Select "Display," then click "Change display settings" from the left column. When using multiple monitors, select the monitor that you would like to rotate. Click the drop box next to the "Orientation:" option. Select the desired rotation and click "Apply." Click "Keep Changes" or "Revert," depending on preference. Click "Apply" in the Display Settings window. Click "OK" to finish. Hope this helps

Acer how to setup


You are looking for an option called Rotation or Rotation Lock (varies by Android version and tablet). Once you find it, orient the tablet so it is in landscape mode, then turn off rotation. If you do not have an option on the bar at the top of the tablet (top pull-down you get by sliding down a finger from the top of the screen), then go to Settings, Display, and look for Rotation, Rotation Lock, or Screen Rotation.

How do I do a screen rotation?


Drag down the menu from the top of it. There should be 2 parts of it. Slide top to left. Click rotation if it shows lock. If it shows a phone with 1 or 2 arrows. Then the rotation is free to turn.

Check your manual or search on Microsoft forum to see how you can stop the change. Unfortunately with the apps, this is dependant on Microsoft releasing software/apps that work on the tablet.

Screen rotation lock is now audio muting. i want to return to screen rotation lock


Unfortunately, this is a new feature from a past update. There is no current way to change the lock button back. However, you can access the screen rotation lock by double clicking home, swiping right, and toggle the screen rotation lock. As a future note, in the next update, you will be able to change it back.
