When you’re using your device, an image, video or other piece of content can be oriented in the wrong direction.

On some occasions, the way to rotate the content is to place your index and thumb on the screen, and rotate your hand to the desired rotation, and then release your hands from the screen.

Though sometimes this may not work. Sometimes all you need to do is rotate the actual screen in your hand and the content on it will match the orientation of the screen.

If rotating the screen doesn’t work, make sure you don’t have your rotation lock on. To learn more about rotation locks, please watch one of the video below.

If your rotation lock is off and it’s still not rotating, it may be a limitation of the app you’re using. Sometimes apps are made to only work in one orientation.
