Select the cells you want to rearrange then Click Copy (Ctrl-C)

and then by Paste / Paste Special and tick Transpose and OK

You can copy, then Paste Special and select Transpose.

or you can use a formula:

=INDEX(A:A,COLUMN($A$1:A$1))  copied across. Then you would need to copy that and paste special as Values over itself, before you delete the original.
