How do I Stop the Screen from Automatically Rotating on My Samsung Galaxy Tab E? (SM-T560)

The Auto rotate feature uses an internal sensor to detect when you rotate your device, and it adjusts your screen accordingly. The feature is turned on by default, but it can be turned off and locked in Landscape or Portrait mode by following the steps below.

   

Turn On/Off Auto Rotate

When auto rotate is turned off, the screen orientation locks to the current orientation.

  1. To open the Notification Panel, swipe down from the top of the screen.

       

  2. Touch Auto rotate in the Quick Settings Panel.

       

       

  3. To turn Auto rotate back on, open the Notification Panel. Then, touch Landscape/Portrait.
