GBM How To: Keyboard Shortcut to Quickly Change Screen Rotation

Looking for a keyboard short-cut to quickly change screen rotation? Ctrl-Alt and any of the four arrow keys will set you free:

  • Ctrl+Alt+Arrow Up will rotate your screen up
  • Ctrl+Alt+Arrow Down will rotate your screen down
  • Ctrl+Alt+Arrow Right will rotate your screen right
  • Ctrl+Alt+Arrow Left will rotate your screen left

I’ve verified this to work in Windows Vista and Windows XP, whether a tablet pc or regular notebook. With a regular notebook there maybe some video card constraints. Update: HP’s tx series doesn’t seem to support this keyboard shortcut.
