How to Rotate an Image in Windows 10

Windows 10 File Explorer has inbuilt functionality to rotate pictures. Let’s see about it in detail.

Open the File Explorer and select the image(s).

Right-click on it and you can see two options – “Rotate right” and “Rotate left.”

Rotate right and Rotate left options

As the name indicates, the former turns the picture to the right, and the latter rotates the image to the left.

Use the options until the image is in the way you want.

You can do the above task with the below steps too:

Select the image(s). Hit the “Picture Tools” tab in the Ribbon. There, you can see the “Rotate left” and “Rotate right” which you can use to rotate the picture. Use the options until the image is in the way you wish.
