How to rotate your Chromebook’s screen

Are you tired of staring at your Chromebook’s screen the same way every day? Do you need to rotate it for a better view or presentation? Well, fear not! In this blog post, we will show you how to easily rotate your Chromebook’s screen using two simple methods: keyboard shortcuts and system settings. Plus, we’ll also teach you how to rotate a second screen if needed. Say goodbye to monotony and hello to a fresher perspective on your device with just a few clicks! Let’s get started.

How to rotate your Chromebook's screen

Using the keyboard shortcuts

Using keyboard shortcuts is a quick and easy method to rotate your Chromebook’s screen. For this, you need to press the Control, Shift, and Refresh buttons together. The Refresh button typically has an arrow that forms a circle and is located between the full-screen button (F4) and the decrease volume key on most Chromebooks.

Once you’ve pressed these keys simultaneously, your screen will rotate by 90 degrees in a counterclockwise direction. You can repeat this process until your desired orientation is achieved, whether it be landscape or portrait mode.

If you want to revert to the default screen position or re-orientate it again later on, simply perform the same shortcut: Control + Shift + Refresh. It’s as simple as that!

Using keyboard shortcuts not only saves time but also makes rotating your Chromebook’s screen more convenient when working on multiple projects with different views. Give it a try next time for quick results!

Using the system settings

Using the system settings to rotate your Chromebook’s screen is another straightforward method. To begin, click on the status area located in the bottom-right corner of your screen.

From there, select the gear icon to access your system settings. Once you’re in, scroll down and choose “Device.” You’ll then see an option for “Displays.”

Clicking on that option will bring up a menu with additional display options. Look for “Orientation” and select either landscape or portrait mode depending on which way you want your screen rotated.

If you have a detachable keyboard or are using an external monitor, make sure to select the correct display from the drop-down menu at the top of this page before changing its orientation.

Once you’ve selected your preferred orientation, hit “Apply” to save changes and enjoy! Using system settings is a handy way of rotating screens when keyboard shortcuts fail.

How to rotate a second screen

There you have it! Rotating your Chromebook’s screen is a simple process that can be done in just a few steps. Whether you’re using keyboard shortcuts or the system settings, rotating your screen allows for a better viewing experience and improved productivity.

But what if you’re using a second screen? Don’t worry, rotating it is just as easy. Simply follow these steps:

1. Connect your second screen to your Chromebook.
2. Click on the status area in the bottom right corner of your screen.
3. Select “Settings” and then click on “Device”.
4. Under “Displays,” select the second display that you want to rotate.
5. Choose how you want to orientate the display from the drop-down menu under “Orientation.”

And there you have it! By following these simple steps, you’ll be able to rotate any connected displays for an even better viewing experience. So go ahead and try out these methods today – we promise they won’t disappoint!
