How do I stop the screen from automatically rotating on my Galaxy S8?
The Auto Rotate feature uses an internal sensor to detect the rotation of your device and adjusts your screen accordingly. The feature is turned on by default but can be adjusted at any time.
Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.
Disable auto rotate
1. To open the notifications panel, swipe down from the top of the screen.
2. To turn off the rotation, touch Auto rotate.
Note: When touching Auto rotate, the icon changes to Portrait. Touch Portrait to enable auto rotate again.
