Rotate screen Windows 7

In this post, we want to show you how to rotate your screen in Windows 7. This might not be worth it for your first screen, but it can be quite useful for a second or third monitor, for example, if you want to scroll a news feed or read chat as a streamer. But these are only a few examples. Surely you can think of a completely different advantage for you, so that it can be worthwhile for you to rotate the screen in Windows 7.

Rotate screen in Windows 7 – with shortcut or in menu:

Windows offers various shortcuts for rotating the screen in Windows 7, but they do not work for everyone. By default, this is possible via CTRL + Arrow, CTRL + ALT + Arrow or CTRL + Shift + Arrow. As I said, however, it can happen that this does not work for you. This was also the case with us. If this doesn’t work for you, we recommend the normal way via the menu. This is easily accessible and does not actually take any longer.

Step-by-step instructions:

  • Right click on the desktop
  • Click on “Screen resolution”
  • Go to the “Orientation” section and rotate the monitor according to your needs
  • Done!

As you can see, it is not difficult to rotate the screen. By the way, we have already written a post on how to rotate the screen in Windows 10. So if you’re on a newer version of Windows, it’s best to check that out as well. Alternatively, you can find many more useful tutorials on our Youtube channel.
