    How to set the monitor so it rotates?

    There must be a setting somewhere which limits the monitor from changing when you turn the iPad " sideways" or any other way. Somehow I unintentionally changed and froze mine. I want rotating back.

    There's a tiny slider switch next to the volume rocker.

    Have you checked the switch on the side over volume?

    My vol is reduced to about half on the slider. Below it are 5 buttons. I did not see anything suggesting monitor position.

    Please advise,
    Dan

    It's a physical switch on the iPad side near the physical volume switch. One position locks the auto-rotate and the opposite position frees it.

    It is exactly where you said it would be!
    Thank you kindly,

    Likewise. Maybe it's a fake? Like all those Rolexes on offer?
