Windows 7: Screen rotation toggle landscape to portrait

Screen rotation toggle landscape to portrait

I often work on projects in portrait mode. I do this either through the nVidia control panel or Windows 7 Control Panel. Is there an easier way to toggle between landscape and portrait orientation? Can this be done with a batch file or keystroke macro? Thanks.

If it was through the Nvidia control panel there should be a "hotkey" section that will enable you to customize that.

I don't think there are any hotkey settings for this in nvidia control panel, or Windows 7 change resolution settings. You can try this small program:

Download iRotate 1.37 Free - This is a screen rotation utility that can be used by anyone. - Softpedia

The following hotkeys are enabled by default:
· Ctrl+Alt+Up - rotate 0 degrees
· Ctrl+Alt+Left - rotate 90 degrees
· Ctrl+Alt+Down - rotate 180 degrees
· Ctrl+Alt+Right- rotate 270 degrees

Not sure it's written for Windows 7, but will apparently work. A Guy
