  • The screen orientation is not controlled by VirtualBox - VirtualBox is just doing what Android is telling it to do. I'm not sure which version of Android you're running, but you will probably find the Android setting in Settings->Accessibility->Auto-rotate screen. Make sure this is unchecked. Note that I didn't post this as an answer because I've had trouble like this in the past and, depending on the app, it may or may not work. I'm not familiar with Pheed. Sep 4, 2014 at 14:31
  • Ohh auto rotation is off now dear ...there are a lot of my app going to this shape , this is not because of pheed , instagram , facebook , twitter and some more all rotating while running them

There are some hotkeys listed for ICS, which hopefully still work with Kitkat:

Rotating the screen: (to get that operate we must to have activated “Auto-rotate screen”)

  • Press F12 two times in less than 2 seconds = Rotate 90º to the LEFT.
  • Press F11 two times in less than 2 seconds = Rotate 90º to the RiGHT.
  • Press F10 two times in less than 2 seconds = Rotate 180º.
  • Press F9 two times in less than 2 seconds = Normal view 0/360º.

So I'd say try hitting F11 twice should solve your issue – after activating screen-rotation.

  • blame the corresponding devs, @PhilippMunin – nothing we can do about it, sorry.
