Are you tired of constantly rotating your Android device to view content in landscape or portrait mode? Well, you’re in luck!

In this article, we will guide you through the process of enabling auto-rotation on your Android device. Say goodbye to manually adjusting your screen orientation and let your device do the work for you!

Step 1: Accessing the Display Settings

To get started, swipe down from the top of your screen to access the notification panel. Look for the gear-shaped icon labeled “Settings” and tap on it. This will take you to the main settings menu.

Step 2: Navigating to the Display Settings

In the settings menu, scroll down until you find the “Display” option. It is usually represented by an icon that resembles a computer monitor. Tap on it to access the display settings.


If your device has a different layout or customized user interface, these steps may vary slightly. However, most Android devices follow a similar structure, so you should be able to find the display settings with relative ease.

Step 3: Enabling Auto-Rotation

Once you have accessed the display settings, look for an option called “Auto-rotate screen” or something similar. This option allows your device to automatically adjust its orientation based on how you hold it. Tap on the switch next to this option to enable auto-rotation.


If the switch is already enabled, then auto-rotation is already active on your device. You can skip this step and proceed to enjoy automatic screen rotation.

Step 4: Testing Auto-Rotation

To test if auto-rotation is working correctly, simply rotate your device to a different orientation. You should see the screen adjust accordingly, switching between portrait and landscape mode.

Step 5: Fine-Tuning Auto-Rotation

If you find that auto-rotation is not working as expected or you prefer a specific orientation, you can fine-tune the settings by accessing the “Auto-rotate screen” option once again. Some devices offer additional options such as “Portrait”, “Landscape”, or “Auto-rotate with delay”. Experiment with these settings to find what works best for you.


Enabling auto-rotation on your Android device is a simple and convenient way to enhance your user experience. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can save time and effort by letting your device automatically adjust its screen orientation. Enjoy seamless transitions between portrait and landscape mode without lifting a finger!
