Hey everyone, this is Andrew Tai and welcome to my YouTube channel. Today I’m going to teach you how to rotate your Mac screen. And this is going to work on Intel Macs, Apple Silicon Macs, whether it’s running a MacBook or you’re running on an external display. This is all going to work the same way. And I’m going to show you today on macOS Ventura.

So if you haven’t subscribed already, then please consider subscribing and you’ll be able to keep up to date with the latest Mac tutorials.

So what I’m going to teach you to do is to access the rotation display settings menu. So the way to get to that is we click on the top left hand side of the screen here and then we hover over system settings. So don’t click anything yet. Then we’re going to hold down the option key. So you’ll know that this is working because the about this Mac button will change into system information. And when we click system settings, it’s going to unlock this hidden menu.

So the next thing we want to do is to click on the displays menu. Now, before we do that, I’m going to hold down the option key again. Now, when I click on displays, we’re going to get to the right menu. And you’ll know that it’s correct because at the bottom of the menu, we have this button here which says rotation. So here it’s got the standard rotation at the moment on my MacBook Air screen.

So you’re going to miss this if you go to the Apple menu and you go to system settings and you don’t press the option key, then this menu is not going to be available. And also, if you click on displays first and you’re not holding option key, then you’re not going to have this rotation menu here. You have to have the option key held down whenever you click on one of these system menus for the first time in order to see this rotation menu.

So once that menu is there, what you can do is to change the rotation of the screen. So, for example, I can flip this to 180. And here I’m going to press confirm. And now my screen is upside down. Here I can flip it to 90 degrees. Then I’m going to press confirm. And now it’s flipped over. And this can be handy if you’ve got a specific type of workflow that you want to do. Maybe you want to read it like a book, flip it over the other way. And basically, this is how you rotate your screen.

So I’m going to put it back to standard. And I’m happy with that. That’s what my screen is going to look like. So if you ever want to set up a portrait monitor, then this is the menu screen that you’re going to need. If you have any external monitors attached, then they’re going to appear on this top side here on macOS Ventura.

So anyway, I hope you found this video useful. If you did, please like, please subscribe, and I’ll see you in the next video.
