[x00008] How to Disable Screen Auto-Rotation in Windows 10

Windows 10 can automatically rotate your display if you have a convertible PC or tabletโ€”just like your smartphone. You can lock your screen rotation in place, if you like.

Automatic screen rotation is only available on devices with a built-in accelerometer. Windows uses this hardware component to determine the screenโ€™s current physical orientation.

How to Toggle Rotation On or Off

Theย Action Centerย has a quick action tile that toggles auto-rotation on or off. To open it, click the notification icon on the taskbar at the bottom right corner of your screen, or press Windows+A.

Click or tap the โ€œRotation Lockโ€ tile at the bottom of the Action Center pane to enable Rotation Lock. This prevents your screen from automatically rotating and locks your screen in its current orientation.

If you donโ€™t see this tile, your device probably doesnโ€™t support automatic screen rotation. Itโ€™s also possible that inย customizing the Action Center, you removed that tile and need to add it back.

You can also toggle Rotation Lock from the Settings app. To do so, head to Settings > System > Display. Scroll down to find the โ€œRotation Lockโ€ slider and set it to the โ€œOnโ€ position. Toggle it to โ€œOffโ€ to disable Rotation lock and enable automatic screen rotation.
