PDF files can come in all different formats, including different page setups. Sometimes, due to the way the a PDF is formatted, the document can appear sideways or even upside down. Adobe Reader lets you fix a strangely formatted PDF by rotating it either clockwise or counter-clockwise so that you can read it without turning your head different directions.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open the PDF document in Adobe Reader.

  2. 2

    Click the "View" menu button.

  3. 3

    Select "Rotate View" and then choose whether to rotate the PDF clockwise or counter-clockwise.

Tips and warnings

  • You must have Adobe Reader to view and rotate PDF files. You can download Adobe Reader by visiting Adobe's official website (see Resources).
