Dual Monitor Question

Last Modified: 2017-03-26
In Windows 10, Ctrl+Alt+(the arrow key) can rotate your screen. The problem is, I need for my second screen to rotate and not the first. So far it will only rotate any app that I have open on my laptop and not on my 2nd monitor. Any suggestions?

I don't know what video card you have but if i put mouse on my left monitor screen and use CTRL + ALT + Left arrow, then only left monitor is changing from horizontal to vertical
I think Tyler has it. Go into the actual graphic card settings. There should be a setting there to rotate screen, and give you an option for the 2nd monitor.
