Sometimes, the problem is different, when it comes to how to rotate the screen on an Android mobile phone if the rotate option doesn't appear. However, this tutorial explores another perspective.

This problem usually occurs because sometimes the building block of devices does not work correctly. Either due to disabling or problems with the sensor built into it.

In the season where several people, users of the Samsung Galaxy S8, have had problems with the automatic rotation. Later, rotating and using the Samsung Galaxy S10 screen in landscape mode eliminated the problems.

It should be noted that all of this also occurred when the setting was marked for lock rotations. Therefore, you could evaluate the solutions presented here.

This could be why the lock doesn't work, then this aspect of the mobile It will be calibrated and reconfigured.

In order to block the automatic screen rotation of Android applications, we need to acquire a simple and free program that is located within the Google store.

In case the problem continues to occur, you will need to investigate whether the rotation problem occurs only in the application or in the entire system. In case it is the former, you will have to reinstall the program in order to solve your problem

Use Rotation Manager to block automatic rotation of apps on Android

Many users of the android community have decided to disable auto-rotation to avoid this kind of app issues.

To solve these problems by attacking applications directly and not the system in general, we recommend Rotation Manager from Google Play Store.

After installing it, the main feature of the application will be demonstrated, which is based on the desire for visual changes when necessary.

When we open the application, two options will be displayed: the first option concerns the global orientation, which can be activated by clicking on a mobile button which will always be visible on the screen.
