  • Have you tried to lock the screen orientation before running Pheed? – Paul Ratazzi Sep 4 '14 at 12:57
  • how do I must to do it in virtualbox ? – Raha Sep 4 '14 at 14:21
  • 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. – Paul Ratazzi Sep 4 '14 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 – Raha Sep 4 '14 at 14:38

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.

    does not help with applications that force particular orientation :-( – Philipp Munin Aug 3 '17 at 14:46
  • blame the corresponding devs, @PhilippMunin – nothing we can do about it, sorry. – Izzy Aug 3 '17 at 16:23
  • I just installed Smart Rotate app from google play and it works fine now. This should be and answer for this question – Philipp Munin Aug 4 '17 at 14:35
  • @PhilippMunin then why not post it as answer, giving some additional details on how to achieve the goal with it? – Izzy Aug 4 '17 at 16:05
