Most monitors are shipped without the ability to rotate the display. They have a static foot and it is not possible to change the orientation of the screen. However, there are models that have a foot that allows you to rotate the display in different directions and change the orientation from landscape mode to portrait mode. In addition, many monitors have VESA mounts, which can be hung on the bracket and move them in different directions, freely changing the position of the monitor in space, including its orientation. Owners of notebooks may also need to rotate the screen. But in addition to the physical rotation of the screen, you need to make changes to the settings of the orientation of the display in the operating system itself. In this tutorial we will tell you how to change the orientation of the display and rotate the screen 90 degrees in Windows 11.

  1. Go to Windows 11 Settings (press the hotkeys on your keyboard: Windows + I).
