Dual Monitor Question

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'm not aware of any way to get the keyboard shortcut to do this, depending on your graphics card driver you can sometimes change the orientation of a particular screen in those settings. Otherwise there are free programs like iRotate that will allow you to do this.

So make your secondary monitor your primary and physically switch them.

Give that a try.

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.
