    The Android 4.2.2 screen appears in landscape mode, how do I rotate for a more phone-like portrait mode?

    Hi Chuck,
    Parallels Desktop allows you to use Android Virtual Machine in Landscape mode only, we would pass on this information to our development team. Please stay tuned for future updates.

    Now I have same issue as well. Currently, I installed Android 4.4 X86 version on the Parallels Desktop 10 and it is working properly. However, there is one particular Android App which would only work on the portrait mode. For now, the only thing I can do to get used to the way this App position now. I do hope that the windows for this APP could be rotated back so that I don't tilt my head when looking at it.

    The only way is to rotate the screen through Mac OS X settings which is a pain. VirtuaBox allows 90 degrees rotations with the Function Keys. Fortunately I have an older HP tilt screen for page reading mode, however I still have to rotate the screen settings as it's upside down to the monitor orientation. Ya'd think Parallels would allow some keys to rotate in 90 degree steps for all VM's.
