I have a pivoting monitor (in other words it can turn sideways) and it's a pain to go Desktop > Screen Resolution > Portrait/Landscape > Ok > Keep Changes every time I want to switch the orientation to do something better optimized for the alternative position. Whether it can grant me auto-rotate or fix it to a hotkey or something, I don't care. I'm running Windows 8.1.

Hello Candentia,

 

You can easily rotate the screen by doing ctrl + alt + the arrow key you want to rotate it.

I tried that, it doesn't work. I've seen the option mentioned in Google searches for Windows 7 and 8, but for whatever reason it's not doing it on mine.

CTRL+ALT+-> Only works if you have a integrated GPU client like Intel or GeForce. This website suggest a program called "Display". Looks home brooded, so use at your own caution.

Ctrl + Alt and Arrows are the best option than other.

Yes, but it doesn't work with some Windows 8.1 systems, hence the OP.
