How to Rotate a Touchpad
Rotating your touchpad will make it easier to use when you change your desktop orientation. (touchpad image by Wolszczak from

You can change the orientation of your desktop with various monitors and operating systems in a number of ways. This is helpful if you are reading full-page documents on your computer. However, if you rotate your desktop on a laptop, the touchpad will not rotate with the screen, which makes the touchpad difficult to use. Eeerotate is a tiny application that will rotate your touchpad and screen at the same time so that they always maintain the same orientation.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Download and install Eeerotate (see Resources).

  2. 2

    Press "Ctrl+Alt+Right Arrow" to rotate the screen and touchpad 90 degrees.

  3. 3

    Press "Ctrl+Alt+Up Arrow" to reverse it back to normal.
