How do you turn off auto rotate on Samsung?

Answered by Willian Lymon

To turn off auto rotate on a Samsung device, you can easily do so by following these steps:

1. Start by swiping down from the top of your device’s display to expand the quick settings menu. This can be done by placing your finger at the top of the screen and dragging it downwards.

2. Once the quick settings menu is expanded, you will see various options and icons. Look for the “Auto rotate” option, which is usually located in the upper-right corner of the menu. It is represented by an icon that resembles a phone screen rotating.

3. Tap on the “Auto rotate” option to turn it off. Once tapped, the icon should change to indicate that the auto rotate feature is now disabled. It may appear as a locked or crossed out icon, depending on your device’s software version.

By following these steps, you have successfully turned off the auto rotate feature on your Samsung device. This means that the screen orientation will no longer automatically change when you rotate your device. Instead, the screen will remain in the same orientation until you manually rotate it.

I personally find this feature useful in certain situations, such as when I’m reading an article or browsing the web while lying down. However, there are also times when I prefer to have the screen locked in a specific orientation, especially when watching videos or playing games. Disabling auto rotate allows me to have more control over the screen orientation and prevents any unwanted rotations.

It’s worth noting that the steps mentioned above may vary slightly depending on the model and software version of your Samsung device. However, the general concept of disabling auto rotate should remain the same across most Samsung devices.

Turning off auto rotate on a Samsung device is a simple process that can be done by swiping down on the status bar, tapping on the “Auto rotate” option in the quick settings menu, and disabling the feature. By doing so, you can have more control over the screen orientation and tailor it to your specific needs and preferences.
